New start up


Jul 16, 2017
I have a 28,500 gallon I ground pool with a salt generator. I'm having the liner replaced this spring. I have no idea where to start to get the best start up without the pool stores killing me. I'd like to know how much, what brand of everything I need to put in the new water to get the best start up I can. Thanks for any advice you can give me.

Get good test kit like TF-100 or Taylor K2006c!
Add CYA to get around 30. I would aim a little low in case you over calculate pool size.
Add Bleach/Chlorine to get to ~5FC.
Run full test after an hour or so.
