Hey all, I have been lurking on here since Friday when we purchased our AGP. And I have learned alot, but I am now feeling very overwhelmed. My husband is not a pool guy and I will get no help from him in helping to maintain the pool. They installed the pool yesterday and today I am filling it up. I would really like to use the BBB method. It seems to be very practical and economical. Well, it came with very little info on how to start it up and maintain it. Though, it does say not to put any chemicals in it until it is full. My filter is a Voyager Swimpro with a cartridge element filter. My pump is a Hayward Power-flo LX 1.5 hp. When they installed it they didn't really tell us anything about how to operate it. I don't think that the instructions that came with it are very clear considering that I know nothing about the pool. The filter has an Aquasmart cleaning system attached to it to put the "Bac Pac" in it. Can I use that and still use the BBB method and still use the shock chemicals that came with it? Like I said I am very overwhelmed and don't even know where to begin to turn the pump and filter on when the pool is full. By the way, my pool is an Oyster Bay(Artesian) 24' round 52" deep AGP. It is already giving me a headache by stressing me out. I don't want to do anything wrong and "break" something important. You all have been very helpful to others on here and I could really use some of your smartness. LOL! I will get some pics put up as soon as I have time.
