Size 8200 AG, DE filter
CH: not sure, forgot to jot down, can retest later if needed
First time pool owner! We just filled the pool last week from the tap. The water looks clear. From what I can gather the TA and pH need to be taken care of first and I have some baking soda and borax for that and was about to add that tonight and let the filter run overnight.
What I'm unclear about is how to address the 0CYA/0FC properly. I've got some bleach and CYA and also have some Trichlor if I'm remembering correctly if that's a better option. I'm concerned about adding bleach without CYA for fear of bleaching the liner, but I'm unclear if there's any negative affects to adding CYA without Chlorine. What's the best way to address this? Do they need to be added proportionately or should one go in first?
Thanks for any help, I'm excited to get started.
