    Help with balance after new liner

    Hello all! New to the forum. I found this forum as a result of replacing my liner this spring as well (should go in this week). My past experience has been with chlorine. This is my first experience with salt water pools; we bought the house last summer and just kept the salt levels as per the control panel.

    But the prospects of replacing the liner left me without a clue until I found this thread. Maybe there should be a "Start Up" forum topic???

    Anyway, as I read these posts, and use the Pool Math calculations, I think this is my start-up chemical mix and process given my pool volume:

    1. Adjust pH
    2. Add about 160oz. of 8% bleach to get FC to ~4
    3. Add about 20oz of CYA to get CYA of ~70
    4. Adjust TA
    5. Add about 500lbs of salt to get salt to ~2800 - 3000ppm
    6. Turn on pump and allow to circulate for ~24 hours
    7. Plug in the SWG
    8. Fill floating ice chest with ~6 ice cold BL's
    9. Open BL, chill
    10. Repeat steps 8 and 9 as necessary

    I'm surprised by the relatively small amount of bleach necessary. Is this approximately correct?

    18 X 36 Sport, ~21,800 gal, SWG, (more to follow when I get the specifics).
