Startup Questions

I just put salt in my pool for the first time and I am about to fire up my cholorinator, but I am wondering if there is anything else I should be putting in my pool? I have been adding acid when needed, but would like to know if I am missing anything.

Turning on the cell should be 24 hours after to allow the salt to be evenly distributed.

How are you testing your water? If you are unsure of your pool chem needs because you need more of an education, the best I have found on the web is at Trouble Free Pools site.
