I'm the one from the thread " Pool Remodel - Not off to a good start" (for anyone interested in the history of my project)
Wednesday the pool company put the coating on and yesterday (Thursday) a worker did an acid clean. When he left, he started filling the pool and said to let it fill up and leave the drain (ground water) pump on until it is full. This morning the pool and spa was full, so I shut off the ground water pump and got the pool and spa pumps running right after disassembling and cleaning the DE filter really good. I replaced the DE and let the filter pumps run most of the day.
The problem is, we received no instructions on what to do with the water. The worker said he would be back Monday. I tried to call the office for guidance but only got an answering machine. It is past their closing hours now. I am concerned about chemical imbalance, damage to the coating and possible algee starting to grow for the next 3 days. Am I being overly concerned? Can this water sit for 3 days without the chemistry adjusted with no damage? Am I just being overly concerned? The lack of communication with these guys is certainly not comforting, but I know they are very busy and can't do hand holding. If I just had some instructions to follow.....
Any recommendations from the forum here? What would the experts do?
