I'm almost done filling the water,and I took a sample to the pool store. By the way it is city tap water, and very clear with a light green tinge to it (only when looking in the deep end)
Total dissolved solids 200
This is what they said,
As filling add 32 oz of Stain & scale
wait one hour
Add 24 oz of Broad Spectrum Algicide
48 hrs later with filter running
Add 2 lbs of Turbo Shock
wait 2 hrs
Add 3 lbs Chlorine Stabilizer
Here's my reading with the TF-100 kit
water temp 72 deg. (BRRRRRR)
I was going wait till the pool was full,about 3 more hrs, add the Stain & Scale then add 41 oz of bleach to bring FC to 3. Then after I got the pump up & running add the CYA with the sock method about 3.5 lbs. (Thanks Jason for the pool calculator)
How long should I wait inbetween chemicals when adding?
I wasn't going to bring it to shock level and I wasn't going to use Algicide at all. Does this sound good or not? I'm guessing the light green color is not algae since it's tap water.
I'm new to the BBB method, my parents used the puck & shock method years ago and where always adding chems. I appreiciate any & all help.
