I want to make sure I have a game plan on what I need to do.
I have a new liner being installed in about 2 weeks and I want to have my arsenal of supplies ready.
First, since I have a salt water pool, I need several bags of Salt (about 18 or so for my 27K pool).
Second, I know I will need CYA as my fill water will not have any. (stabilizer)
Third, I know I will need to get chlorine in there soon; however I'm not positive on how much initially as I allow the salt to circulate 24 hours prior to turning on the SWG.
Being to adjust the pH and TA according to my fill water's beginning amounts.
Chemicals to have on hand:
Muratic Acid & Baking Soda (that's the nature of my SWG)
Now from here, is there is any steps I have missed (other than adjusting the chemistry to fall within the guidelines)?
On another topic, I have used hth Shock & Swim (cal-hypo) and have read about it adding to much calcium to pools. I just don't understand how if people only use this to shock their pool, how do they even manage with such a high CH? I have read about Dichlor and Trichlor, but I just do not understand them that well and I haven't seen any (I'm almost refusing to step foot back into a pool store).
