Hi everyone, I've been enjoying reading all the posts in the forums and learning about how to successfully keep pool chemistry in line. We started a pool build in the Fall of 2014. We got as far as getting the pool dug, liner installed and water to keep it in place before the bad weather hit. We had happy pool dreams all winter and now are gearing up to get it done. Pump, filter, SWG and heater are in place but not yet plumbed. The rest of the plumbing, electric and gas hookups should happen this Friday (I hope!). After that, we'll be ready to have concrete patio poured.
After reading all of the pool school articles, I can't wait to get started. It's a little frustrating right now because I can't really start doing anything until the pump and filter are operating. I plan on getting one of the recommended test kits. I'll be sure to post results as I get going.
One thing that occurs to me reading about chlorination. For people following the TFPC method, you really want to have a SWG. Otherwise, you would be adding liquid bleach daily. Are there any other methods for adding chlorine only without the extra CYA besides liquid bleach? I can see that folks without SWGs would quickly tire of adding it every day.
Looking forward to my pool adventures this summer!
