Hello All,
I have a few questions regarding what to do right after my pool is filled and what order. I done the pool calculator and it said 2 cups bleach to go from 0 chlorine to 3ppm. Should I add bleach right after its filled? And does that amount seem right for 11,000 gallons? Anyway just looking for the correct steps to get everything balanced after fill. I do have my test kit and am familiar with using it. BTW we will be using water from a tanker truck.

You need close to 48 oz of 10% liquid chlorine to get to 3 ppm. I would suggest adding half a gallon and start your 30 ppm worth of CYA dissolving. Test pH, TA, and CH for the record.
