    Question Can't find guide for Opening a quick-set pool?

    Hi, Last summer was my first year owning a pool. I remember coming across a method for initial set up for vinyl quick-set pools. I have searched, but can't seem to find it again. It was a detailed guide about filling, when and how much bleach to add to start with, etc. Basically, it was a guide for preventive set-up as you are filling the pool.

    Can anyone direct me to that info? Thanks!

    No. I looked at that. That isn't it. It was something that gave specific steps in filling to prevent a lot of problems to start with. It talked about filling 'x' amount, then adding 'x' amount of bleach, etc. It was a step-by-step method to fill quick set pools in such a manner that headed off the need to SLAM later.

    I think that was changed to what was linked to above. It is the same idea. All you need to do to prevent a SLAM is maintain adequate FC and that is done through frequent testing and dosing.

    I said, the article was changed ... but if you know the forum better than me, feel free to find it and point it out

    If you understand the chemistry, you should not need a step by step guide. And if you do not understand it, then it is better to ask questions and learn.
