Well We finally finished out new Gunite Pool. Startup company come over and explained brushing, backwashing and chemicals. additionally he had some suggestion that I want to run past you veterans. Plis i have my own questions
1 -Been brushing 3 times a day for the last 5 days. My "Day 1" clean pressure stared at 10psi and I was back washing at 20. slowly my post backwashing pressure is now 20 psi. Is that normal?
2 - also, my water is crystal clear and I do not see any dust coming off as I brush. My pressure is remainig at 20 psi but my return pressure is still stong. should I backwash? I now havent backwashed in 2 days
3 - As of now I have been using mostly PH Down but have also added some algecide. When Do I add chlorine and start swimming?
4 - Start up guy recommended expansion gap caulking in place of my styrofoam the patio contract left in there
5 - I have very small bubbles comng out of one of my returns. Ive done a search and it seems most are due to SWG, but I don't have an SWG yet. I have N2 but havent added the mineral pod yet to the canister. Do you think I have a leak?
