Question: My pool was just remodeled. It was completely filled up Thursday and Miuratic acid and Metal out was put in only. I get home Thursday night to a pretty blue pool. However, my sand filter was full of algae I know it. Haven't had a chance to deep clean it prior to pool being remodeled.The basket had algae in it so i scrubbed that down. I began scrubbing the pool and noticed alot of dust and matter. The pool also had the smell of a lake to it..
The pool builder told me they will put chemicals in Monday. He said they must give the pool time to let the metal be removed from the water... 4 days? Seems excessive to me for just metals. I have never used metal out personally, just haven't had the need to. I wanted to know what you guys think.
I have a TFT kit and am ready to attack this sucker, I have a pool party saturday that was loosely planned, I would like my pool not to smell like a pond. I plan to cancel it or at least let people know it isn't really ready and smells like a lake.. lol.
Just wondering if it would be okay if I apply chemicals today, I am over 24 hours into the metal out being applied. Pump has ran over 24 hours. The company will be doing initial chemicals for free with the remodel Monday, but I don't really care, I'd rather my pool not smell like a lake.
What do you guys think? Thanks in advance.
