Filling pool, how much salt, baking soda,

Postby chuckiechan » Sun 30 May, 2010 08:31

I'm planning to drain my pool TDS's too high, and it's been a few years.

It 15,000 gallon, salt system.

Are there any charts around that will give me basic start up quantities so I don't go overboard? (been there, done that!)

I'd like to know total Lbs. of salt, and total Lbs of Baking soda. The rest of the chemicals, I can do myself.

Thanks in advance...

The pool calculator does that (and a bit more).
