As you can see, it's a hole in the ground right now. We /hope/ to have water in it in a little over a month. It should be around 21k gallons (19x38 with a tanning shelf at the far end).
So what brings me here this early, I mean, I don't have a water problem yet! Well, I'm reading and devouring everything I can and I have a couple of questions for you all:
Filling it, we live in central Texas and have really, really hard water. I haven't tested it yet, but I'm a wondering if I should cheat and use my softened water for part of the filling process? It has a 2500g capacity and I could pre-cycle the softener it the night before we start so it has full capacity and help lower the hardness.
I also assume I should have the top-off run off softened water.
Finally, I'm wondering if there are any startup tips you all have that might save me pain down the road. I'd just assume start he pool right instead of having to fix it later.
I have a Taylor K2006 and LaMotte 2056 in my shopping basket already on Amazon (I was going to pick one, not both) , before I decided to do more reading here and discover the TF100.
