Hello all, I am getting a pool installed this Saturday. It is an above ground 24' pool. Included in the package is a Pool Frog chlorinator. I have no experience with balancing water at all, or with pools in general. So I have ALOT of questions. Please help as I am getting the pool in a short time. Thank you.
1. How would I start up the pool once it's filled and completely unbalanced? Should I run the pump 24/7 to begin with?
2. Is running the Pool Frog alone enough to sanitize and keep algae at bay? Or would you recommend an algaecide?
3. How often should I test water clarity?
4. I've heard algaecides stain. Is this true? (the pool frog brand claims to use only 3% copper which they say doesn't stain)
