First off, we might not have a new pool if not for this site. Discouraged by the conflicting information from pool builders, I wasn't willing to pull the trigger on a pool until I found this site and gained the confidence to go for it. I'll post some pics shortly, but first a more pressing issue...
The PB came this morning to start-up our new pebble finish pool, and it was not at all what I expected. I expected something like described in TFP pool school, but instead we got 1/2 gal of muriatic acid, some baking soda, to two trichlor tabs in the skimmer. I asked about follow-up steps...nothing, the PB is done and gone. I already knew we didn't see eye-to-eye on pool care when I politely turned down their preferred package of ozone, UV, PoolRx and in-line tab feeder.
So now I'm seeking advice on completing the start-up process. The pool finished filling ~24 hrs ago. The pump is running continuously on low.
Current TF100 test results:
According to the Traditional Start-up procedure I would...
-Add metal sequestrant ASAP
-Brush daily and clean filter as needed
-Hold off on CYA and chlorine for another 48 hrs.
What about pH and CH? Adjust ASAP or wait like with chlorine?
Any and all advice appreciated.
