    Small cuts burn

    Still feel it in the bucket. It's not bad at all (either in pool or bucket), just annoying. Added muriatic acid & chlorine Sunday night (separately). Small amount more MA to correct pH this am, after burning issue. Maybe we're just uber sensitive to it?

    Small cuts burn

    Doesn't feel like shock at all. Burns still for a few mins after getting out. Deeper under water worse. I don't remember a mesh. Coping moartered down, deck sand set.

    First test results after NB pool fill

    Fill on Thursday, startup from PB on Saturday. Used the TF kit just now, results are: FC 0.8 pH 7.9 TA 140 CH 450 CYA 48 Pool startup guy said he added enough chemicals to get us through to our orientation on Friday evening. Thoughts? Appreciate all the help thus far!

    Gorgeous, Jon! Our turf install is scheduled for 6/11, we can't wait. Yours looks great. Who was your PB? Out startup guy said we wait 1 hr after initial startup....we'll see what he does tomorrow. We have some super excited kids (and dogs)!

    NB in Chandler, AZ - Pebblesheen + abalone question

    Thanks mknauss! I just found that and was perusing, good read! I will have the supplies but what will PB typically do at startup? I was under the assumption they would turn on equipment when they came Friday afternoon/Saturday but this article makes it seem like there are steps to take before...

    NB in Chandler, AZ - Pebblesheen + abalone question

    Got it, thanks! PB stressed continuous fill but didn't say not to turn things on. I probably wouldn't have but still good to know! I have my test kit on the way, what else should I get before my Friday PB startup?

    NB in Chandler, AZ - Pebblesheen + abalone question

    Hi from a newbie! NB in Chandler, AZ. Pebble was applied today and abalone was supposed to be added. My question....can you see the abalone in the pebble before it's acid washed and water in the pool? I can't see it and just wanted to make sure it was added. Also worried about the dark...
