    What did the builder say? You don't want to give him any excuse to weasel out of the warranty. Personally, I'd wait until you don't get any more dust off the walls when you brush, at least.

    It should go without saying that you want pH in range, FC adequate for the CYA, and clear enough to see the main drain.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Brand new pool.. jump in as soon as the water hits the top. You do take a shower with same fill water? Ever swim in a lake without the proper ph, cya or fc level? Seriously, if you have kids, nobody will die if you do a lap or two the next day.

    I am absolutely going to do that for my pool. Have a pool party? No. But get in 15 mins after it hits wall tile, yep!
