I have placed an order for the t100 test kit but I am trying to figure out what to do beforehand. We are filling the pool next week. It is a 16x 34 IG pool. The previous owner left 40 lbs of chlorine tablets behind and i would like to use some of them. I was thinking of adding them in the beginning to help get my cya levels up to about 30 and then start the BBB method. Is that going to be helpful or should I manually dissolve pool conditioner to add the cya and toss the tablets? Everyone says tablets add cya, but I have never seen a mention of how much. If i add say 10-20 tablets over a 2 week period (keeping fc in check) will my cya be 20 or 200? I am more or less looking for some guidelines on about how much to add.
I am also going to have to use tablets in my chlorine feeder sporadically through the summer, I am also trying to figure out how much that is going to be raising my cya levels and if i am going to be sol?
