I just had a 21' round above ground pool put up and filled. The power is not run yet, so there is no circulation. I followed the Pool Math calculation and added 1 gallon of bleach and used the brush to stir the water around for about a half hour and this was just before dark. The next day, I had FC level at 10. I went to put the cover on and it did not fit. It's a mesh winter cover that is 18' and the box is marked 21'. Joy!
I'm now waiting for the replacement to come in and it probably wont be here for a couple days. The PB told me to put 1 QT of algaecide (Gave me Algi-Sea 10%) and 2.5 gallons of chlorine in the pool and cover it. Now, I've read Pool School and this just does not seem right to me.
Since there is no CYA in the pool due too no way to circulate it, my FC is at 0 after a day or two. If I stick with the level at 10, can I add the Algi-Sea also? I understand I would have to add about a gallon of bleach every day until the cover comes in. The Algi-Sea instructions say that for a 10,000 gallon pool, the initial dose is 26 ounces.
