So I just built my pool a few weeks ago. And by built I mean I had a bunch of guys come help me put the physical structure up.
It's a Wilbar (Sharkline or somesuch) 24' x 52' above ground.
Over the course of the last few weeks, I've been filling it, and it's about 1/2 way full right now. Ha. I have a well, so I'm really taking my time. I don't want to lose my aquifer!
Anyway, the water is a little green...and I think most of that is just on the bottom, as I put on some garbage bags the other day and went in to check things out.
I don't have a test kit yet, and haven't added any chemicals.
I won't have it up to the level of my pumping system for some time yet, but was wondering if I could add some chlorine or something to kill the green and keep it from being a mosquito breeding ground.
For the filter, I have a Hayward DE setup (AC40) and a 3/4 HP 110v pump. Haven't even gotten the pumping all set for that yet, but like I said...I'm a ways from having enough water for it to matter.
Anyway, I've been reading a lot, but can't find too much on initial setup.
Oh, and the dealer sold me a Frog mineral system...which I also haven't hooked up yet, nor researched that much on. He just said it will make the pool need less chlorine, which sounds good for a sensitive skinned fellow like myself.
