    Pointers for a soon to be newly resurfaced pool?

    Hi Folks,
    We are almost ready to begin the resurfacing of our 20+yr old pool; Still draining water...

    Once the resurface is completed, I imagine that some special care is required while the coating cures. I've read here that the pool should not be used for ~ 3 weeks, and that the pool should be brushed daily. The person doing the resurface said we should treat it as a new pool, and shock the heck out of it.

    Other than a bunch of chlorine, pointers on what level of chemical balance I should be attempting are greatly appreciated
    34 x 19 salt water free form. 7.5" inside diameter raised spa. 24" raised beam in back. 3 moss rock waterfalls off raised beam and moss rock waterfall out of the spa. (2) Intelliflo VF pumps, 420 Cartridge Filter, 400 BTU Pentair low nox heater. 2.5" suction and 2" returns throughout.

    A fresh fill does not necesarily need to be shocked unless you are filling it from a pond
