My liner will be replaced with a Merlin 28 mil in about 2 -3 weeks. I will be doing a new water start up. Water will be from a well; have no municipal water available and haven't found anyone to fill via other means. I assume I will need to complete the shock process right off the bat?? I realize ya'll are going to want the test results of the well water and I will get those and get them posted here. I also want to add borates, but will make sure everything else is done and balanced before that process is started.
Do I need to add an algeacide right up front? My educated guess is no. I have the CYA on order so it can be added. Pool company will also be installing a new DE filter and 2 speed pump to replace my sand filter and older 1 hp pump while here. I will post those models and sizes in my sig when they get here. Just want to make sure I am not missing anything upfront before I get started. If I remember correctly, my well water is very high in phosphates.
