Hello all, this is a first time post for me so please forgive me if i don't include all info needed.
First, I live in northeast Ohio, and my IG, steel walled vinyl liner, approx. 29000 gal. pool is in the construction phase. It will be salt water ( Hayward salt system), gas heated, with 250 lb sand filter and 1.5 horse pump. My question, I've been reading post about adding borates to water when the pool has been up and running, can I start off adding everything needed while filling? , ie borates and salt. Or what else should/can I add while filling? The pool contractor just gets it going with the salt, but truly i want a trouble free pool!
