A new liner is being installed in a pool at a rental property of mine. I want to be as efficient as possible after the install with getting it set up and ready, mainly to minimize my time there.
The pool is 16k gallons, but other than that, the equipment is exactly the same as what I have in my signature for the equipment at my house.
What is the best way to get the water balanced in the most efficient way? The fill water is just tap water from a hose. I've tested it before but it has been a while. Nothing was wildly out of range.
I'm assuming I won't need to worry with shocking since it's a fresh fill so my plan in my head was to:
check pH and adjust if necessary
Add bleach to bring FC up to 10 just to maintain until I can turn on SWG.
add CYA via sock method to bring up to 70
add 400 lbs of salt (this makes my back hurt just thinking about it)
Brush until my arms fall off to mix all of that salt in...
Go back tomorrow, verify numbers with full test (other than assuming CYA is going to be correct) and turn on SWG.
If this is completely off base or needs some tweaking, let me know.
