I have a 15' by 42" Intex Ultra frame pool (4,600 gallons) with the little baby 1,000 gph filter. I had been using a flip 'n frog for two months successfully but just had to drain due to a bad algae bloom and am switching to TFP as I refill it tonight. I bought a Taylor k-2006 kit. I think it is more than I need but I'd rather have more than enough than not enough.
I drained it down to about two inches of water and scrubbed the liner with bleach earlier tonight. I added 121 oz of 8.25 bleach while I did my final scrubbing and that was mostly left in the pool when I started to refill but some did get drained out. The water is about 8 inches up now and looks really clear.
I know I'll need to add CYA, can I assume that there is none in my tap water?
Since I don't have a skimmer how should I add it?
Can I add now or do I have to wait until it's full?
Also, I cleaned all of the filter lines with a bleach bath and haven't done any tests yet, but am planning to test PH and Chlorine in the morning. Is there anything else I should be doing or checking?
Thanks in advance.
