    tell me if i am right or wrong

    i am installing a new liner this year. (j-hook). any good tips on that would be helpful!!!!

    when my pool is filled should i adjust the alk. first, PH second and chlorine third?

    are there any other chemical i should add at the beginning as well

    sorry guys. i got a lil rusty over the past winter.

    pH first.
    Then Chlorine.
    Get some stabilizer in there.

    Then fine tune. http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-...ary_pool_guide

    Ditto to what Richard said...except the temp pool guide. I know our lil 24's may not be top of the line, but I wouldn;t go ahead and consider them temporary.

    I suggest you test your fill water first.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    As suggested above, please adjust your pH first. Don't worry about alkalinity. When your life settles in, grab yourself a big hunk of Pool School!
