I joined this forum a few years ago when we bought a home with a pool. The pool is a free-form gunite pool that holds ~ 33k gallons. I basically maintained it using pool store techniques, but I now have the perfect opportununity to switch to the TFP methods.
We decided to have the pool rehabbed by having the old coping, tile and marcite replaced. In the past week the pool has been stripped back to the shell and new coping, tile and pebble sheen plaster has been applied. The final steps take place tomorrow and we will begin refilling the pool.
I gather that my first steps will be to get the pump circulating once the pool is full. After that it seems I need to focus on balancing the PH, TA and CH. Once that is done I plan to start using liquid chlorine for sanitizing the pool.
I've searched the forums and cannot fine a thread that is exactly on point. Any advice would be appreciated.
