Ok guys so I have some questions for you. Since my baqua conversion last summer this will be my first time opening with the BBB method. I have read pool school/how to open you pool section but still need some clarification and answers. So here they go
1. Once I get everything hooked up and raise my water level to mid skimmer level should I let the pump run a couple of hours then test my levels? or should I test as soon as I get it filled to mid skimmer?
2. Okay so then I can test TA, PH, and CYA, I will record my results and adjust as needed, do I need to go ahead and add my CYA and then get my chlorine to the right level? This is the part that I am confused about.
I am not sure if I should shock until the chlorine holds steady for an over night test like I did when I closed it, or if I should add my CYA and then does Chlorine to recommended levels? Not sure here???
3. I haven't taken the cover off yet because I don't have my CYA, could I go ahead and get everything running and tested and then do the CYA tomorrow?
4. Does TA, PH need to be adjusted before adding the CYA?
Sorry for all the questions, just a newbie and ONLY trust you guys!
