It hit over 100 degrees on Sunday last week and as luck would have it, I finished the install and fill on 12x20 Doughboy.
It has been a long hard 6 weeks of getting this thing up namely in being so meticulous in getting the ground level with the hard clay soil we have. The wife and kids are happy now so I can get on to all my other household projects.
I did my initial testing and chemical startup.....have PH appearing stable at 7.2 and initial Chlorine at about 2.0
What is recommended regarding maintaining chlorine level?
I understand I can add granular chlorine each day but would prefer if I can use 1" or 3" tabs slow dissolving tabs.
My pool is about 10,000 gallons based on its size and depth.
Also, I seem to find mixed answers on shocking pool. Product manufacturers suggest shocking weekly. I purchased some HTH pool shock but have not used it yet.
At what point should I shock first and then how frequently?
Thanks in advance for all helpful advice to this new pool owner.
