I have been lurking on the forums for a little while doing my reading and research. I am buying a house with a IG salt water pool that has been closed for quite a long time, about a year and a half. It has been covered for the entire time so there isnt much solid waste, but lots of green algae. We are closing on the house friday so I don't have any test numbers yet, just trying to get a head start on what I need before we get there. I do know there is little to NO salt left in there at all and I am sure the FC level is 0. I have been reading up on the SLAM process but I don't really know where the salt comes in. I do know that i'm not going to turn on the swg yet, but when do I actually need to add salt? once the water is cleared up? Other than that i'm just looking for any advice in general. I already ordered this test kit, it will be here on friday.

Can I not just use some 70% chlorine granules to make things easier? I appreciate any help!
Ok for some reason my sig is not showing up. Here is the pool info
