After a series of unfortunate events, I'm going to be re-booting my pool. I had a light, a heat pump, and a SWG installed and the light caused a ton of problems... the pool has not been used since.
The 3 feet of water left in my pool are so swampy that I'm going to drain it entirely and just start over with brand new water. I live in a city so the water is municipal drinking water.
I plan on testing the water for salt content (because there has to be SOME salt in the water, I'm sure) and then I'll add my salt from there.
My question is.. when starting with brand new water like this, is there anything else that needs to be done besides the salt chlorination? I don't know how many of the other factors are part of that... ph, alkalinity, etc. I live in NE so we have alot of acid rain which from what I understand, will counteract the rise in alkalinity from the salt.
Also... how long usually before the SWG generates enough chlorine for the pool?
