Ok - bare with me, I'm a 2 day pool owner. I've checked out pool school and am getting familiar with the whole pool chemistry - my TF-100 kit should be in tomorrow.
First newbie question: when adding bleach/chlorine, do I pour this directly into the pool???
How long do I have to wait before it's safe to use the pool once I've added the bleach/chlorine?
And what about conditioner/CYA? On our skimmer basket, it says not to pour any chemicals into the skimmer - but the instructions on the conditioner says to pour slowly into the skimmer?
I started pouring it in front of the skimmer, but a lot of the granules fell to the ground and I can see them spread about on the floor liner... is this okay/normal???
That's it for now... and TIA!!!
