Day 6 of startup on my new 19k inground plaster (with quartz aggregate) pool. I have been reading up in this forum and thought I would get my pool all balanced perfectly quickly. Well, I did that, but now I have read some things about plaster startup that make me nervous that I balanced too soon (esp CH). Here are my numbers that I have been getting the past 2 days (I'm testing twice a day right now)
I am using trichlor until my CYA gets to about 40-50, then switching to BBB. Did I raise my calcium too early? Or should I just let it roll? Oh, and I'm in the Houston area, so I won't be closing my pool.
