We are just starting up out Intex pool.
THe pp0ol is filled and we followed the instructions for the Intex SWG and salt is dissolving in the pool at this time.
Intex 16x48 Ultra - 5,016 Gal
Pump: Intex 635T
SWG: Intex cs8110
There are 125 lbs of salt in the pool per the cs8110 instructions. The salt went in yesterday afternoon.
we only have the test kit the came with the SWG (real simple), but we will be ordering the TF-100 test kit this week.
I will follow the instructions for the SWG and start it when I know the salt has dissolved.
I plan to follow the SWG instructions for adding CYA after the generator has run.
Is there anything you would add/change to this process so far?
I will not have any test results for a couple of days, but will post them here.
My basic questions really start with this:
I see that some say you should put bleach in the pool when SLAMing, or to raise the chlorine level. Is this just something like Chlorox bleach, or is this something I need to buy from a pool supply store.
I know one would need test results to know this, but, typically, how much bleach (gallon jugs) go into a pool to help with chlorine levels?
I guess I would be looking for examples like 5000 Gal pool has X amount FC and to raise it level Y you would need to use N gal of bleach. Is there a table/calculator for that here?
I will post further info after testing the water.
