    Fill Day and Rain

    Had some rain pass through this morning but all gone and plaster (Micro Fusion Pebble) is scheduled to begin today. Tomorrow morning they acid wash and begin filling and rain is expected later tomorrow afternoon and throughout the weekend. Anything I should be aware of and prepare for as far as this affecting the water balance? Fill water results are:

    PH - 8.2
    TA - 110
    CH - 110
    Chlorine - .5

    Record what the builders put in the water by name and dosage - especially conditioner/stabilizer for your CYA. Once full, you'll need to have regular bleach and some muriatic acid always available to maintain FC and pH. Your CH and TA will also be evaluated once full, but won't change as much. PH and FC will be your most critical values for quite a while. Congrats on the pool! Don't forget to post pics for all of us who hate to read.

    Oh, it will also help us if you add your test kit to your signature.
