Just filled my Intex 16' AGP yesterday. I've been reading about the BBB method, and do plan to try it this summer. I still have one puck of stabilized chlorine that I will put in the floater tomorrow.
I don't see an easy to find guide for "First steps after filling". Here's what I think I should be doing: Put in stabilizer today. Shock treat tomorrow (I still have a couple pounds of HTH Shock n Swim). Put in the 'puck floater' after shock treating tomorrow.
Once the puck is gone, I'll throw away the floater and begin using Walmart liquid bleach. Headed out to Walmart now to buy bleach and stabilizer.
How does my plan sound? Should I stablize and shock right away today? Once the puck is gone and I'm using liquid bleach...am I still supposed to shock treat once a week?
I'd like to suggest an easy to find guide for first steps.
Edit: After more reading in the Pool School, I see that I may not have to do any shock treatments...Just dump in the recommended amount of bleach
