I know plenty of people do their own start up and probably don't sweat it, but I am a slow learner and tend to get overwhelmed in the details but have always been one to dive on in.
Here's the update:
Friday the 25th pool was full and pumps kicked back on.
Saturday started brushing the pool completely once a day
Sunday same thing + clean filters
Monday take a water sample before adding chlorine
added 3 pucks in floater
still sweeping, attempt to vaccum without luck ( is there a fo dummys step by step on here somewhere, didn't see it, have watched you tube and still can't get suction)
FC 1 ( didn't do CYA this time, will do it with next test)
ACCCK, check PS and forums and realize that I should have already been adding muratic acid!!! Promptly went to PC and proceeded to add 3 cups, 1 oz or muratic acid
BTW, HOW do you handle that stuff safely....it freaks me out!!
So, here we are and I am thinking I have not done so hot so far...and yet I am trying so hard...please tell me there is still hope for me, my pool and all the money I just spent??
