We are almost done with our pool. My amazing husband has been working for months building our pool and has done everything on his own in the evenings and on the weekends. He's never built a pool before but is very smart and really handy It looks amazing. The liner is in and the water is now filling the pool! Our deal was...he builds it and I maintain it.
This is our very first pool and I have been reading this website non-stop for a week. I feel like I have a good understanding of pool chemistry and what to do. I have my test kit (leslie K-2006), my salt, my stabilizer, and my muriatic acid ready to go. I have tested my tap water so I know what I'm starting with and now feel comfortble with the test kit. I have used the pool calculator and have double checked all the calculations. I'm just waiting on the water. My children are standing around the pool chanting, "fill, fill, fill"
So here are my questions....
1. Do I wait for the pool to be completely full before adding my cocktail of stuff?
2. Is there any special order I should add the stuff?
3. When can my kids swim?!
4. Should I add bleach upon initial set up to give the SWG a chance to work? If so, how much bleach?
