    aquabright in australia startup chemicals

    just signed up to get my painted pool refinished in aquabright blue lagoon
    whilst perusing their website i found the startup sheet
    at initial fill use EasyCare StartUp-Tec
    maintain chlorine 1-3ppm using tri-chlor
    do not use calhypo as it is too harsh (LOL)
    weekly add algaecide
    and shock as required with Lithium Hypochlorite
    monthly add EasyCare Beautec
    i dont want to void my warranty but what a load of baloney sandwich.
    no mention of ever testing cya
    what do you guys think of the EasyCare StartUp-Tec
    as i assume the pool company will probably add this when they refill
    i wont be using the rest but i dont think i can get away without them adding this one
    thanks, andrew
    ps should i still use the plaster brush on the dolphin or switch to the vinyl brush

    Cool! Didn't know that was available in Aus. Yes, unfortunately they say a lot of the same things the rest of the pool industry says.
    Startup Tec is fine to use during plaster start up. I don't think you need it for Aquabright but it won't hurt anything. Definitely avoid the rest of that ... I would switch to the vinyl brush on the cleaner.

    I would still suggest using the sequestrant at startup. As for maintenance, there is nothing taught on this site that is any more harsh than what the MFG recommends. Their methods of chemical maintenance are more to protect the surface from ignorant pool owners.

    HERE is another discussion on the matter.
