I just had a liner installed. I fIlled it half with well water and half was trucked in city water. I went to the pool store to have the water tested. I walked out of there feeling raped. Here is the results of the water test.
They sold me 2Qt stain remover
25lb Alk increaser
75lb calcium hardness control
1 Qt Algaecide
To the tune of 200 some dollars.
40x18 lazy L rectangle. 8.5 deep 3ft shallow. I came up with 31000 gal roughly. Vinyle liner. Please let me know if this all sounds right. They said do the metal remover first filter 24hrs. Then the Alk 12.5 lbs a day and split the hardness in 4 parts. Then shock after 72 hrs. Then 6lbs of chlorine stabilizer. Seems like alot to throw in the water. Please help
