    New liner going in... Need help with a return.

    Hi guys, I am having my tired faded full of holes liner replaced in the morning... I will have many questions... Such as best recommendation for adding chlorine and acid and baking soda etc... In the past since the liner was fried already when I bought this house I didn't care as much so I would just pour the chlorine in at the pools return, I would pour acid in the deep part, same for baking soda. Any way I want to know how best to do these things so I don't harm the liner or fade it out. Please give your opinion...

    Ok so to the point... I have a return that was cut at some point, I don't know why only that it was... The water table is high where I live and I can't lower my water when I close, or the liner will float... I don't want that to happen to my new liner... Problem is with the cut I can see bubbles come out with the plug in when closing, so I know water met also get in as well... Here are some pics... I would like to fix or at least improve it since there is no water (if I can do so before the replace the liner).

    I can't help with the pics but all chemical additions are to be done in front of the return, slowly. Test your water and only add what it needs.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Ok so sounds like I may have been doing fine... You drop acid and baking soda in same area? And do you drop baking soda dry or pre mix with water and pour.
