Absolute noob! Our dig is scheduled in a couple of weeks. I have listed as many specifics as I can (with my limited knowledge) in my signature. If I need to add please let me know. My question involves the first start up of the pool. I read in a post where it says let the pool co handle this as there are warranty issues for the pebble sheen. So at what time should I add Borax. The idea of softer water and algae deterrent sound great as well as helping buffer ph swings. How could you loose? Is there anything I should talk to the guy who does the initial start up about or should I just let him do his thing and change later?
