Hi guys! Just found this site a short time ago and so far it has given me some new insights on owning a pool. We have an AG which I just took down and repainted everything, turned it parallel to the deck that I am planning on building next year, and sunk it in the ground 2 feet, so it would be just above the level of the new deck. ( the dig job was done with a shovel and wheelbarrow and one weeks vacation. ) pool is 12 X 24. I used the foam cove base, and like some others found that it did not stay put on the curved sides. Also used gorillia pad and that has really helped with getting the wrinkles out of the new liner. I just waited until I had about 4 inches of water in the pool, and simply pushed all the winkles to the ends of the pool. The pad made the liner slide very easy. Also used the foam wall liner. Just filled the pool today and everything is perfect.
Now for my question: I just ordered the TF test kit to go the BBB route. Since the pool is now full and running, and everyone is itching to get in ( rebuild and dig took one month ), should I add any bleach now or wait a couple of days till I get the test kit to get a starting point. Volume should work out to 7700 gals.
