Greetings Forum! By way of introduction we have just semi retired to SW Florida from a life in Alaska (wife born there, 35 years for me). Pools, Central Air and Lawn Irrigation Systems are completely foreign concepts.
First: THANK YOU to all for being here. This resource is just wonderful!
I have read Pool School twice now, printed out most of it and placed the pages into sheet protectors for use poolside. The resurfacing has been ongoing, along with the rest of a complete house remodel. The pool will be resurfaced tomorrow with PebbleTech so I thought I better get on here and get this intro done. I will try to get a few before and after pics posted later today. Will continue to take pics as the process unfolds. Equipment was placed Friday. Electrician comes this week along with the resurfacing crew. I’m told there will be eight in the pool with trowels. Pebbletec pumped in by hose.
I’ve been told by the contractor the first 30 days will be chlorine and then “I” go to the SWG system. I’m unsure just how far they are going to go to get the pool water stabilized and the plaster dust rmoved before handing it over to me and walking away. Any ideas on what I should expect to have them complete before handing over the last 5% payment would be appreciated.
Please see sig for specifics. I ordered a Taylor K2006 which should be here this week. I am also having a SolarTouch panel installed to the Pentair VS so I can utilize the 8 solar panels on the roof.
Again, thank you for being here and helping all us clueless new pool owners. It is very much appreciated!
Robert & Kerri, SW Florida
