Pool just got installed today and is in the process of being filled (24' round 13,500 gallons). The pool installer said I should add 4 gallons of 10% bleach while the pool was filling, but that seems like an aweful lot to me (especially when I look at the pool math calculator). Pump will not be running on the pool until electrical install is completed on Saturday (perhaps not until I pass inspection on Monday) so perhaps that is why he told me to go so high? My gut is telling me I should add a gallon to the pool and then check FC (my TH-100 kit comes tomorrow), but what level should I try to maintain until the pump is online? Do I need to do an initial shock? Installer indicated I should add at the hose and stir around with the skimmer which makes sense, will I have issues if I add more bleach the next few days without the pump running?
Lots of questions I know. Just want to make sure I don't mess something up while I am waiting to get the pump running.
Thanks in advance for your help!
