Hi all im new here same as a lot of other people found my way here after the "problems " started too much Trichlor after checking a CYA of over 150 so i enede up with a swamp not a pool all the locals "experts" around here just seem to chuck Alum in once a month and keep going like that . After a lot of reading on here looked like i had to drop 65% on water out to get the CYA back near normal . So ive emptied the pool pretty much and start again .
The question i have is do you just fill the pool (its going to take maybe a week or so with slow pumped well water) then balance it or try to do it on the fly . First time i filled it i let it fill then alumed it and started from there as it was green already and not too clean .the water tempeture runs at about 29-35oc most of the time
