    Should I shock since I won't have my SWG going for another few days?

    Who is supposed to be maintaining the pool? If pool builder, than follow his instruction for warranty. If it was my pool, I would just add some bleach/chlorine. Have you bought a Pool Test Kit, yet?

    Algae at and above waterline

    Those rocks look like Moss Rocks. I also have Moss Rocks for my waterfall and part of my pool wall. Are you sure it is algae and not moss starting to grow. I am pretty sure you have nothing growing below the waterline. I use a spray bottle full of bleach and a nylon brush to remove the moss off...

    I would buy some plain old bleach/chlorine from HEB, Walmart, Home Depot, or Lowes, etc.

    Pool still cloudy

    A 25% increased on your normal filter psi. For example: At 8 psi, you would backwash at approximately 10 psi. A 2 psi increased of 8 psi is approximately 25%. I am an old fart, so I am using math from the 60's and 70's. Good luck

    New Build - Depth Opinions

    I have 16' x 34' freeform(kidney) pool that is 4' - 6" deep. I should have gone deeper, due to living in the Houston, Texas area. Water warms up in the summer.

    If the hoses are inexpensive, the smart thing to do would be to replace both hoses.

    How much longer until you open?

    Open your pool. What do mean? Who closes their pool in the Southern United States. Current pool water is 72. A little too chilly for me.

    To check for a gas leak before your installer shows back up. Use a spray bottle with soap and water. Spray the gas connections and look for bubbles.
