We just got a pool installed and I am clueless on what to do. We do have a spa, so I'm assuming it's a bit similar as far as chemical upkeep...I have spent time reading through the Pool School information. I did order the FAS-DPD test kit, but what I'm not sure about is am I supposed to add water clarifier and stain preventative? I read steps on another site and that was listed as one of the first things to do. Add stain preventative and water clarifier. It then said to brush 2x's a day for 7 days with pump continuously running. However, I don't see this step listed on here. Is this necessary?
(In case it helps to know, my water is crystal clear)
