We have a hole in our above ground liner. Soooo we have to start completely from scratch with the water. When we got our pool 5 years ago, the installers started the water chemistry as part of the deal. It wasn't long after that I had issues and started doing my own research. That is how I found this site. Since I did not begin with BBB, I had to adjust to it based on what the "pool store" did. I noticed toward the end of last season, I was having a great deal of issues with an algae that would not die. Now I get a fresh start. So from the very beginning, what do I need to do?
Here is what I am thinking....please, please correct me if needed.
1) fill the pool (we use city water)
3) adjust as needed.
My main question is CYA, do I need to get this? Do I need to add it? How much? My volume is 7600 gallons, (18 foot round pool) & we are starting over with fresh sand in our filter this year. When I started BBB 5 years ago, they had already added this, so I have no idea how much they added.
This is my big chance to get this thing perfect the first time.
