As the name entails, I am finished with pool guys (too many stories, bill add-ons, mystery additives...), will start maintaining my pool myself.
Last fall I drained my 7,500 gallon pool, acid washed it, replaced jets and painted it. So far so good, the pool looks brand new. I cleaned it out for a final time last week, applied a fresh coat of paint to the bottom and waited 7 days, now ready to fill.
A few questions, in advance, I did a check on the forum and didn't find precisely my situation, so started a new post.
- I intend to fill with a hose, using a hose-attached filter. Necessary?
- As far as I have read on this board, my first step is to get the pool filled, then run the filter continuously for 72 hours. During this time, I should begin to bring the pH into spec.
- From there, appears CYA should be my next focal point, while concurrently beginning to add chlorine.
- Looks like the test kit of choice is the TF 100. Unless recommended otherwise, I should be ordering one in the morning. Is this the best option?
So many questions, so little desire to bore you guys, appreciate any assistance, or any unsolicited recommendations,
