We just finished filling up our brand new 24' x 54" AGP with water...all electric work is done. It is now time to treat the water. The pool dealer is wanting to sell us something that is copper based instead of chlorine but I want to use the BBB method. I have been reading the links to the BBB method but I cannot find the actual first steps that I must do to get the ball rolling. Please pardon my ignorance but could someone tell me step by step how to start this method in a new pool? I want to do it right. Is everything based off the pool calculator?
I don't have a test kit yet except for the strips that came with the pool. Does that mean that using the pool is completely out for this weekend?
