In preparation for filling my new pool, I am trying to document the startup process
First, the numbers for my fill water. No iron or copper in the fill.
alkalinity - 350
calcium - 20
ph - 6.8
After filling these are my targets
FC - 24 (need to add 11 96oz bottles of 6% bleach)
CYA - 60 (I need to add 176oz of stabilizer)
PH - 7.5 (target here due to TA being high) (add 821oz of borax)
CH - not thinking about this yet.
Salt - 3200 (add 600lbs of salt)
Borates - not thinking about this yet.
My questions are
1. Do I wait until the pool is full to start adding chemicals or should I add some as it fills?
2. Do I dose at suggested levels immediately or dose at half, check and dose more as needed?
3. Is there any order at which to dose, ie salt first, then bleach, then stablizer, then borax?
