thanks for answering a lot of questions. I am about a month late on getting it open, but I started the pump Monday night after getting some plumbing issues fixed. I added the sequestrant and salt Monday night. I started adding CYA, shocked and started the SWG yesterday. Last night after I finished backfilling I decided the water looked really good, so I jumped in.
the pool - I know one of the uprights is leaning. We went away for a few days while I was filling it. It rained while we were gone and I guess there was a little washout. By the time I realized there was a problem it was too late. I will have a deck around the pool next year anyway.
