What is in a pool opening kit?
Keeping this in consideration, what chemicals do I need to start my pool?
The safe and proper chemical levels for standard, chlorine pool water are as follows:
- Total Alkalinity – 80 to 120 ppm.
- pH Level – 7.4 to 7.6.
- Free Available Chlorine – 2.0 to 4.0 ppm.
- Calcium Hardness – 200 to 400 ppm.
- Stabilizer (Cyanuric Acid) – 30 to 50 ppm.
Likewise, how do you start up a pool?
- Clear Your Winter Pool Cover.
- Remove Your Winter Pool Cover.
- Clean and Store Your Winter Pool Cover.
- Remove Winter Pool Plugs and Ice Compensators.
- Add Water To Your Pool.
- Reinstall Your Deck Equipment.
- Set Up Your Pump, Filter and Other Equipment.
- Start Your Pump and Filter.
Similarly, you may ask, what chemicals are in a pool closing kit?
- Chlorine Free Pool Shock: Add 2 days before closing the pool.
- Stain & Scale Treatment: Add 1 day before closing the pool.
- Winter Algaecide: Pour into the pool just before covering.
- Winter Floater: Place into the pool just before covering.
Do I need to shock my pool when I first fill it?
The short answer to your question is, yes, you want to put a "start-up" dose of chlorinating agent into your pool to get it to the proper chlorine level (or slightly higher); from there, a "maintenance" dose of chlorine such as from the tablets will keep the proper level.
