New Pool Owner with a 15' above ground pool using a SWG with vinyl.
Can't seem to find a good procedure to follow for which chemicals to balance in which order to get good results. I will list my current test results and hopefully someone has a basic checklist to follow or can offer some advice.
Copper .1 ppm enough to start system?
Salt 2120 ppm after adding the recommended amount and circulating for 24 hours to dissolve.
Should I adjust TA and pH BEFORE starting SWG?
TA is at 180 but may drop if pH is adjusted.
pH is at 8.4 or slightly lower on test strip.
Total hardness is at 400 ppm
free chlorine is at 0 and CYA is at 0 because neither have been added.
any suggested reading or helpful hints at this point would be appreciated.
