I just drained all but about 3 or 4 feet of the deep end to polish the horrible stonescapes finish we had put on (bad application, not product) and have a few water questions. I've never drained and started with new water before and am wondering if theres a way to guess at the stabilizer I'll need. I'm guessing I'll be adding about 25000G of new water which will be at zero. I've found a few calculators, but I'm not sure I"m using them right. Also, is liquid stabilizer worth the extra cost for this scenario if I want to get the water set up quickly?
When our pool was remodeled, they came and dumped in the quart-sized bottles of Jack's Blue Stuff and they said they swear by it for a startup. I wasn't paying for it seperately, so there was no incentive to sell me on it. Anybody have good/bad experience with that stuff?
I know I need to post test results, which I'll do, but I'm out of everything but pH and chlorine tests. I'll get those and try to get some numbers.
