Hi there. New pool construction in southern California. Plastered with pebble (stonescape), filled it on 3/5/20, in the midst of startup process. Looking forward to communicating with everyone as I navigate the world of pool ownership.

Welcome to TFP. Enjoy your new pool.

What startup guide are you following? What test kit do you have? How will you chlorinate your pool?

Welcome to TFP. Enjoy your new pool.

startup:
The PB provides a pool startup guy with each new startup, so i am largely following his suggestion during this process. Have read about pebble startup procedures and am following the brushing frequency here: https://mmgtx.com/docs/PTI-Start-Up-Maintenance-Procedures-Chlorine.pdf

test kit:
was considering purchasing one of the kits from leslie's, but will likely order the T-100.

chlorination:
will begin with chlorine and test how we like that for a couple months, and anticipate switching over to SCG.
