    Dichlor much?

    We just had our pool installed over the weekend, with no instructions on how to start up! We have the frog system. They said to add the shock...dichlor shock. I have no idea how much i am to add?? Ag pool hold approximately 19000 gallons. Cya is 0 free chlorine is 0. Any help is appreciated.

    Re: Dichlor much?

    Raise fc to 3 ppm. Use PoolMath, link above, to calculate how much to add. Without CYA/stabilizer in the pool you'll have to add that a couple times a day.

    Do some reading in Pool School. Start here,

    Welcome Newpooler

    Just an FYI- those Frog systems add metals to your water which can cause stains and green hair/nails. You might want to consider removing that element since and stick with just liquid chlorine for your sanitizer.
