I'm setting up an Intex 10'x30" pool & opting to do it with a SWG, I've read all through the pool school info and I think I've got a handle on the way everything works. At least enough of a clue to go ahead and "jump in" so to say (since this is my first pool).
If I am reading things right once I get the pool in place & filled up I'll need to take a bunch of readings with my new test kit (TF100 - shows that I already trust you guys cause otherwise I would NEVER have spent $80 on a testing kit....). Dump in the appropriate amount of salt, and I'm going to start off with Liquid CYA so I don't have to wait a week for the solid version to dissolve & do it's thing. I'll turn on the filter & pump but NOT the SWG for about 24 hours. I'm also going to go with using Borax so at the same time I'll put in the appropriate amount of that and corresponding Muriatic Acid. Then once that concoction has been brewed for a day I'll crank up the SWG and let that run 24x7 until I get FC up to where it should be. At that point I'll cut back to about 8-10 hours of SWG & pump/filter time a day.
Does all the above sound about right?
I've got the amounts of everything down, and I understand what the various things do individually and in conjunction with each other (I think anyway). The thing I am not sure about is just starting up. Do I dump everything in & let er rip? Should I use bleach to start with to make sure I've got enough FC out of the gate (I assume I DON'T want to do this but the thought crossed my mind).
Comments welcome and appreciated!
