    Newbie Pool Owner

    Thanks up front for all the available info on the website, I'm putting water in the pool now and have a pool school Wednesday, wanted to brush up on all the terminology and get prepared for pool life.

    Thanks

    Hello Jack and welcome to TFP! Please make sure to have one of the recommended test kits available to maintain your new water. Either a TF-10 or Taylor K-2006C. I recommend the TF-100 with Speed Stir. You'll love it and the value you get. Nice to have you with us on this VERY hot TX day.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Congrats on the new pool! It makes summer a lot better. Salado is a cool, old town, we're headed there next weekend.

    The first 30 days of plaster is important to longterm success. Be sure to follow your PB's instructions first, Pebble Tec's instructions second and then what we say.

    Go here for some instructions and register your warranty. They will end you specific start up and care instructions for your pool and give you contact info for support, Pool Care Instructions Pebble Tec

    After the first 30 days, water chemistry management is key to getting the most out of your finish. Managing it properly can add a decade or more to the life of your plaster. Not managing it can result in having to replaster in 5-10 years or less. Unfortunately, we've seen it too many times.
