Haven't even signed the contract yet but am getting a head start on research. We are installing a 16x40 fiberglass diving pool (approx 21k gallons). I have never owned or maintained a pool. As I read more I am concerned about CYA level so I think I am going to go with the manual pour method to maintain chlorine. My first question of the day is:
When the pool is brand new, just filled with fresh water; what do I do? How much liquid chlorine do I add? What else do I have to add to begin with? I am going to order a Taylor K-2600 to test my water. But I am just curious about day 1 right now. I can find a lot here about maintaining but can't find day 1. The pool probably won't be complete till mid November, I do not plan to cover it. It will have a VS pump and cartridge filter.
I do plan on installing a pentair rainbow auto feeder but don't plan to fill it (just a backup, and cheap/easy to do on the install). Is that a problem?
Enough rambling for my 1 question (though I count 4 question marks).
