I am a newbie. Just turned the filter on 2 days ago.....
We have a SWG but our contractor doesn't want to start it up before the concrete deck is on...???? I don't see a problem but he is fearful that the salt will interact with the concrete...???
So we are starting with chlorine. He handed me a bottle of test strips, a bucket of dichlor and along with 9lbs of pH upper( sodium carbonate) and alk increaser(soduim hydroxide carbonate).
We added 3 cups of chlorine and 2 lbs of upper.
What else should I be adding? I have been reading pool school and it seems to me that I should worried about my CYA.....????
I presume that I will need to get these values stable before we start the SWG?
