Hey guys, I know I'm new,but I have been doing my homework here. Bought test kit, read pool school etc.. We have a 16000 gal above ground pool. We have had it for a few years. Trying to learn to keep levels better. We have decided to try a swg. I am currently filling the pool. I did some basic test on fill water. tc .of 0 ph 7.2. That is all I have done so far. Here is my first question. Will someone please tell me the best steps of treatment in order. I have read on here to shock pool using "shock". This will add cya and fc.I have also read in the swg balance section that you can add salt immediately while balancing other levels. GRRR will someone plz give me a basic order to start with? We are desperate. It is over an hour to nearest pool store. I have to get better at this. P.s. we have a sand filter and I cannot find the horsepower of the motor anywhere on it. I will double check. Also this is the swg that i have installed
CompuPool Salt Chlorine Generator 20K Gallons. I have installed it but I have not turned it on at all because Im under the impression that I need to start by balancing pool before i add salt and turn it on. Thank you in advance.
