    Curious about what needs to be done now that we have water.

    Hey guys,

    Our pool now has water in it as of Thursday. I am curious as to what our next steps. Up to this point our PB has told us to just brush the plaster twice a day and that is all. He added a gallon of muratic acid on Thursday and a couple of scoops of DE. Outside of that nothing else has been done. We also do not have any skimmer baskets yet so the pump basket is getting pretty full. I tried to unscrew the top over the weekend but did not want to force the issue since it was very tight.

    Is all of the above on track or should be also be doing other things. Our PB is in over his head right now with too many builds going so we are feeling like he has pretty much checked out on us for the last week or so.

    Should we be concerned or not?

    Thanks!

    Will do. I just got our test kit in the mail so will need to ramp up on how to use it.

    How do you not have skimmer baskets? They come with the skimmers? Get them in there ASAP. You do not want to be clogging up the pump basket.

    Here are more details about the tests that may help:

    No idea how we ended up with no skimmer baskets but I talked to the PB today and he said that someone would be bringing them out. Hopefully it will happen.

    Thanks for the extra info on using the test kit.
