I am finally in the tear out clean out phase of my old liner and prepping the vermiculite floor/slopes with bleach to kill the surprised findings of all the nasty algae that was under the liner Who would have thought.... I have no idea how old the original liner was but must have been quite old to have the build up of algae/mold under the liner (contractor says worst he has seen)??
Anyhow , I have it all torn out and sprayed one dose of 5 gal 12% bleach over everything already and going to hit it again tonight after I try to rinse away what layer has been killed already. Pics will be coming tonight hopefully , especially of a few concerned areas I have with the vermiculite and what I should ask or expect the installer to fix or repair before installing the new liner, I don't want him to cover up any potential future problems if that should/could be repaired now....
Also, The contractor will be lining up fill water from a local place by the truck load (6000 gal load for $250 ea) was planning on getting 3 loads to bring it up to 18K and then top the rest off will my well ?? Any thoughts ? I wont be able to sample any fill water until the first truck comes but was told its typical city water with its small amount of chlorine in it already. I know my main concern right now without any sample is to start getting my FC level up and CYA added once I get the pump going for circulation/mixing .
Any other major things I need to prepare for during the fill ? Quicker/better way to add CYA besides the sock method ? Things to watch out for or look especially close to on the liner install itself ?
Thanks in Advance,
