Joined last spring when our pool construction began. I want to thank everyone here, especially the TFP team. This is a tremendously valuable site.
Took about 28 hours to fill the pool, and another 2.5 to fill the spa. Pool is gunnite, with Hydrazzo Bella Azure plaster. Tile is glass subway tile mounted vertically, with some accent mosaics around the pool. Three waterfalls, and ledge. Spa is about 9 feet in diameter, with spillover. I ordered my XL TF100 test kit with the magnetic stirrer and borate options last summer; just itching to get started with it.
Here is a pic of the pool during fill-up yesterday. We are still in landscaping and construction phase around the pool. This has taken longer to get done than I ever expected; i guess that is common.
One quick question: pool equipment won't be started until tomorrow. Should i go ahead and do a brush-down or two today even though water is not moving?
