So I am brand new to doing on my own. Have used Soft swim products for 12 years. (Tired of it. $$$$$ and never seem to have high enough C level.) Also live in very rural area and have well water with Culligan water system. Pool is small, 8000 gal. Have sand filter, 1 hp pump and Rheem heater (we have free gas from our gas well). I run pump 24/7, and have Turtle bottom skimmer running 1/2 time.
My husband hooked it all up last week, and always starts each year with fresh sand. I am on my own regarding chemical maintenance. The only thing I did so far was add Soft Swim A algacide last week. No chemicals other since last Oct. Can see bottom barely after running for one week. Since I added the Soft swim A, can I still start with bleach after getting ph adjusted? p.s. what is SWG?
