Hi all! I'm thrilled to have found you all! We just filled our new pool with purchased water yesterday. Tomorrow, we should have the electrical done so we can turn on pump and start circulating. I had the water tested at "Clearwater Pools" locally.
Water is clear. My instructions were to add:
1. Add 12# BioGuard balance pak 100 by just adding directly to water with circulation going. Wait 2 hrs before step 2.
2. Adjust the newly raised pH by lowering it with 1# Bioguard Lo'n slo granular 93.2% Sodium Bisulfate). Wait 2 hrs. retest.
3. Add 3.25# cya (put into nylon sock) and dangle in front of return.
4. I have two 1# bags of poolite turboshock granular chlorine (thought I'd use them up, supposedly each bag is equivalent to 1 jug of liquid chlorine) and then I would add additional 1 gal. jug of pool chlorine 13%.
We will be going out of town Thurs - next Tues. What should I need to do about that, if anything? I plan to keep the water circulating with no cover on it.
