I just bought an Intex AGP and set it up last week. This site has been a blessing to say the least. I have my BBB ingredients and have been steadily monitoring things for the past few days. I shocked with bleach and had to adjust the PH down with some muriatic. The CL would quickly deplete in short order so I went and got some CYA and added to the skimmer last night. Immediately afterward I added CL and this morning the CL was almost too high. As the day went on all my levels seem to be stabilizing and everything including TA seems really close to nominal. I figure I am at least getting close to a stable system and will soon be good to go.
One area I am not absolutely clear on is when to use Borax and when to use soda. if anyone could expound on that I would appreciate it.
Thanks for this very informative site and saving me a bunch of $$ and time. Me the wife and our two daughters have not had this much fun together in a really long time.
