    How long after start-up do I need to wait?

    I have never owned a pool before... and I am currently in the build phase. I was just wondering how long after we do the initial start-up (after pebble-tec) can you actually be swimming and using the spa? I have family coming to town and my PB is behind schedule.... Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    You need the pool water to be clear and both FC & PH in their normal ranges. That sometimes takes a week, but often goes more quickly. Also, if the builder says to wait longer, it is best to honor their advice.
