My first post! and my first pool!
I have been doing DIY IG pool install with the guidance (and fortunately he has done a LOT of the work!!) of a friend that is a pool installer foreman. He says he builds them, but not great with chemicals. The pool is plumbed and the liner is in place but pump and filter is NOT hooked up just yet. Anyway, we are filling the pool now so we can backfill behind the walls with the weight of the water pushing out on the walls. Should I put in ANY chemicals at all yet? It could be several days before the process is complete and pump and filter hooked up. It will take 2 more days probably to fill it up with the garden hoses. It is perfectly clear now, but I dont want to have to start out fighting green water or anything...
Any suggestions? I am highly interested in the BBB method. If it ends up being too much trouble we may convert to a swg next year.
Further, if we dont need to add chems until later, then how do you suggest doing the intial dosing of chemicals?
By the way, its an 18x36 with 8foot deep end, hayward color logic LED light, and swimout in the deep end and 6 polaris deck jet fountains. We are so excited that our first pool is almost done!
