First let me say, I love this website and forum, and have learned a lot so far.
I'm having my pool replastered with Stonescapes mini pebble, and have decided to start maintaining the water myself rather than dishing out the $40 a month that we used to do to the service who over-chlorinated when they came out only once every 2 weeks. Whatever they did caused pretty bad etching in my previous white plaster. I'm confident after finding this site that I can maintain the water (and preserve my new pebble surface) better than they can, and for hopefully less money with the BBB method.
I'm set with my TF-100 test kit, and just want to confirm what I need to do to start up the pool. My plasterer does not have any specific advice for me, so my plan is to follow the steps under "Startup Procedures" and "Acid Start-up" found at http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-...aster_start-up. The sequestrant I'll be using is Jack's Magic the Blue Stuff.
Besides the steps in those two sections, are there any additional steps I should take or things I should do?
