    My pool has new plaster

    Hi all,
    I just finished renovating my pool - new plaster (with pebbles in it) and new tiles.
    It is currently being filled out with water.
    As fas a chemistry - what should I put there? how much CYA.
    I have 15k gallon pool.

    Thanks for your answers !!!!

    As I said, if you don't have metals then it's a useless expense.

    Typically, as long as you are on municipal water and are not using a well, metals are not an issue and you don't need sequestrant. If you are worried about metals and metal staining though, you can easily take a water sample up to the pool store and have them test it for you.

    If you are on Dallas' municipal water, you won't need a sequestrant.
