our new pool will hopefully be ready on Sunday - plaster day ! We are in Princeton, NJ, and the temperature is currently in the high 80s - low 90s.
It's a 24K gallon inground freeform pool with 3m quartz finish, Jandy chlorine generator, IntelliFlo pump, Jandy PDA-PS8 controller, 6' sheer descent, Heliocol solar heat
I am looking for some help for the first weeks. I have successfully used BBB for two years on my last vinyl pool but this time it's a bit different ...
The TF100 test kit is on the way ...
Here is what I understand we'll need to do:
- once the pool is full (60% trucked in, the rest from a tap) we'll run the pump 24 hours
- brush twice a day for two weeks
- carefully monitor the PH daily and adjust if necessary with muriatic acid or Borax
- not add any salt or chlorine yet
So at what time do we add the salt, CYA, or do we need to do bleach for a while until the plaster is fully cured ?
When should I start managing alkalinity/hardness ?
What's a good source for pool salt ?
And after how many days is it safe to use the pool and walk on the plaster ?
Thanks a lot !
