    I’m pretty sure they are done. I wasn’t home when they left but it looks finished from what I can tell. I can get a better idea of what my shelf will look like and where my waterfalls will be. Getting excited.

    Re: New Build in Central CA

    Now you have some homework................go out and measure. Add about 6" for the gunite and plaster. Is it big, wide,long, deep, etc enough? If not NOW is the time to fix or tweak!

    LOOK! It is a REAL pool! Sweet!

    Have you started bonding with it? aka watering it!

    It is now time for your own set of links! It is a lot of info so take it slow. It will all start to make sense once you start using it!

    Print these out:
    Pool School - Basic Pool Care Schedule

    Pool School - Recommended Levels

    Bookmark these:

    Pool School - Recommended Pool Chemicals

    PoolMath

    Pool School - ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry

    Make sure to ask any and all questions you might have no matter how small! We have all been where you are at one point.

    Now is also the time I ask what test kit your PB is providing. Let us know so we can fill in any holes it might have.

    I remember most of the above from when I had my last pool and I was more active on this forum. I’m just not too familiar with the startup process as our previous pool was already up and running when we bought the old house.

    I am going to order the K-1766 test kit to begin with and had just started researching kits. I am looking at the K-2006 kit FAS-DPD. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Re: New Build in Central CA

    I think the TF-100 is the best bang for the buck. It has more of the regents we use on a daily bases. It is all Taylor regents just packaged in bigger amounts to find how we do things at TFP. There is a link in my siggy below. The Taylor 2006 is our second chose as it does have the FAS-DPD test.

    Plaster start up-what brand of plaster will they be using? We have links to some of the different kinds of plaster start up. We have one here at TFP but it is out of date and in the process of being rewritten so I don't use it anymore.

    Re: New Build in Central CA

    My PB has been on Vaca for the holidays in the Dominican Republic (I may have overpaid for my pool...) so I have been trying not to bug him the past week and a half. He is back Monday so I have a list of questions/concerns for him.
    Good news is, we have tile going in...

    We are going with a light grey for the grout. He is finishing the tile in the spa today and they are supposed to do the deck this week.

    Re: New Build in Central CA

    So we had a little ‘disagreement’ yesterday with our PB about moving our Sheer Descents. I’m pretty sure he is a little upset with us and will probably charge us a little extra for labor but I like the placement better now.
