Hello,

I recently resurfaced my pool with French Silver from Florida-gem (similar to french gray from diamond bright). Its been 3 days and the water looks green. I understand it takes a few weeks for the color to balance with the chemical start up and all. Anyone has pictures of pool at initial fill and after a few weeks?IMG_2350 copy.jpg

Welcome to TFP and congrats on the new pool. :wave: At some point, make sure to update your signature with all of your pool and equipment info to include the test kit you are using. If you have any other questions, feel free to post. Enjoy. :swim:

I am during the chemical start up, so the pool company is taking care of it for the next month. They come 3x/week to brush the plaster dust and add the chemicals, balance ph etc. Once this process is over i will have a person coming 1x/week

sokin, that is a gorgeous pool. My only advice would be to look into the methods here for maintaining the pool yourself. Pool maintenance is a daily thing, the problem with most pool services is that they can only be there once or twice a week. Witch means they are going to employee methods and tools that are hands off, but cause problems down the road.

TFP methods are better and require less corrective maintenance because you are doing routine preventive maintenance. It is kind of like changing the fluids in your car routinely to avoid engine and transmission overhauls later on.

Anyway, it's a beautiful pool! Enjoy it!
