Our new pool is almost finished after tearing out the old on after it floated up during repairs. I have been reading the start up page for new plaster and have couple questions:
1)DO NOT SWIM DURING THE BREAK IN PERIOD! It is not very clear to me, at least, what the time frame is for break in period. For a tradional sart up, it looks like a week. Is that correct?
My pool builder told me we could swim soon as it is filled up but reading pool school says different.
2) We are installing a salt system and new pump, sand filter as soon as the equipment comes in. Am I correct that we should not use the salt system at the beginning. I still have the old pump and chorline feeder hooked up. How long should I use this before that Salt system?
2a) Should I get one of the start up/winter cells?
3) How hard is to install new pump, filter, swg. I am not very handy but have friends that are. Or should I pay my pool guy to do it?
4) any other suggestions to get this pool up and running when they finally finish?
