    Starting up

    33 ft round AG pool will be installed Sat. How long will it take to fill it up ??

    Also I am thinking about trying the BBB method after reading alot of good info.
    I am going to order the test kit here online.
    What do I need to add to pool since it will have no chemicals in it ?

    Any advice appreciated, Thanks.

    how many gpm's does your hose run? 3-5 probably. how much does your pool hold? you tell the width but not depth. I would guess 4ft but not sure. anyway the answer, as well as most everything else you need to know can be found below. (the answer to volume is found at the bottom of the the pool calculator. link is in pool school).

    You will certainly want stabilizer (CYA). After that, it depends on what's already in the fill water; post test results and we'll see what's up. Until then add a small jug of Clorox to the pool each evening to help keep anything bad from getting started.
