Hi All,

So we have a new SWG pool and we're ready to open. Up till now, all that has been done is adding chlorine tabs provided by the installer which barely work (is that because there is no stabilizer?). Read through pool school and i know we need to work on PH, Alkalinity, and Cyanuric Acid. My question is, before we add salt to the pool so the SWG can do it's thing, should we focus on balancing the other chemicals first? In what order? PH first, then ALK, then CYA? Does it matter? Our installer has not shown us anything as it relates to the SWG and it's use.
