Just got my 16x48 pool setup and full of water.
Going to use the BBB method for maintaining the water.
I have some questions:
1: Stuck with the stock paper filter unit provided with the pool until I get my sand filter and pump from my old AGP adapted to the new intex. The question is how long should I initially run this filter pump? 24 hrs 48 hrs? And then after that how long a day should this filer run? The manual says for my pool only 4hrs per day.
2: The PH and Alkalinity are spot on at this time, but no chlorine registers on the test strips I am using "yes I will be using the proper test kit as soon as it comes in" the pool calc says I should add 33oz of 6% chlorine bleach to get the level up to 3.
I used to have an above ground pool years ago and now understand why I was chasing PH and Alk everytime I shocked or added chlorine tablets to the pool, which is why I am going to use the BBB method.
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
