First I just wanted to say hello to everyone here and that I'm glad I found this forum. It looks like it's going to be a very useful and informative site for me as I'm new to pool care and will be setting up our first pool next weekend. It will be a saltwater system, specs of the pool are listed below.
My question is, what is the proper sequence for checking and adjusting the water perimeters (pH, alkalinity, etc.) after I fill up the pool for the first time? What do I need to do before I add the salt? I know I will need to add cyanuric acid, but at what point? Does the pH need to be in the proper range before the salt is added? Thanks in advance for your help.
