Thanks to the new replies also. I've asked questions on another site and had no replies so I'm very grateful to you all.
I just want to make sure every step I take is done correctly as this is all new to me.
I mix mine 1-2 days in advance. Also have a pump going in the bucket that keeps the water moving and mixed constantly so the water doesn't go bad. It's takes a while for water and salt to mix: add salt, test the level, add some more, test again etc... You can't do it in just a few minutes. Also the pH needs to stabilize, therefore mix it with pump for 1-2 days... Don't forget the heater
