Hi all, I am new to the pool thing and already I'm messing up.
I also posted this on Garden Web and was told it was better suited for this site. My pool was plastered with Quartz aggregate last Thursday and opened yesterday. I videotaped the instruction but somehow missed the part of waiting to add the Chlorine Booster until after the first backwash. The pool guy said run the pump 24 hours a day and added 2 chlorine tablets to each skimmer. He said to add a quart of muratic acid asap and 4lb.s of Anthony Sylvan Chlorine Booster (100 % cynuric acid) to the skimmer after the first backwash and the DE was replaced. I added the muratic acid and immediately followed with the Chlorine booster. I then watched the video and learned that I was supposed to wait until after the first back wash for the Booster. Have I hurt my Quartz aggregate plaster? If so, what can I do?
BTW, he sold me 4 gallons of muratic acid for $43. and this Chlorine Booster for $23., how bad did he rip me off? I know, shame on me for not checking prices first but he said I needed these items asap.
