    Initial pool fill and close at the same time

    Our pool was not completed in time for swim season. So we are filling and closing it at the same time. I have read this link to closing an inground pool Pool School - Closing an In Ground Pool

    but I wanted to see if anything changes since it will be closed before anyone has actually used it. Do I still SLAM it? Or will getting the FC up to a certain level hold? Do I need to raise the CYA up to a certain level before slamming even though it will be covered all winter? This step affects the FC needed according to the chart. Is there anything else you would do differently than the general closing instructions?

    Thank you for all your help. With the help of this forum I have been using using the TF-100 kit for about 2 weeks now with my freestanding hot tub so I am finally getting comfortable with the testing and balancing of the water.

    Pool School - Start-up New Plaster

    I think you really need the pool to be open for at least a month or as long as you can before snow and ice so you can brush it. The levels are going to change quite a bit due to the new plaster.

    Has the plaster been put on yet? IF not you can hold off on it until the spring and do it then. Just an idea.
