I've never owned a pool - lets start there! We are in the process of putting in an in-ground 18'6' X 36'6 grecian pool with a diving end. Approx: 21,000 Gallons (I'll post pics as construction begins)
I've read the pool school and most of the BBB info that I can get my hands on through this forum and a couple other forums that are floating around out there. I have a couple of (probably stupid) questions.
1 - When adding chemicals through the BBB is it best to add them in the skimmer or around the edge of the pool?
2 - Is there any danger in discoloring your liner by adding chemicals - bleach, acid etc... in the skimmer? I've been told that adding chlorine tabs in the skimmer can cause the chlorine to be a strong concentrate when coming back through the returns thus causing the liner to discolor in that area.
