SWEET!!! That looks great! Have you started bonding with it yet? aka watering it to help slow down the curing.
It is time for your set of links! The first set is all about what to do and ask about to get a great plaster job. The second set is all about how to care for your pool after you get the plaster.
Yes to both and the TF-100 is the best bang for the buck. Consider adding the XL option which as a newb will give you LOTs of extra to learn with. You will need a few tries at first and once you get it (very quickly) you will be test happy and use a lot more than once the fun wears off.
Thanks for the laugh, and the reassurance, @Newdude . I have a feeling these are the exact stages I'll go through!This is exactly how it goes :
1) scared of perceived complexity of thorough test kit.
2) realize it’s simply one easy step after another.
3) test the water a bunch and mess up a bit
4) get it.
5). Test EVERYTHING you can find because you CAN The tap. The hose. The bath. The sky. Everything.
6). Only test every day then every other day when you learn your pool and hardly use any testing supplies at all.
7). Test weekly and sigh that the SWG makes it rather boring because you won’t need to do much often.
Yes - we're also doing PS Blue Surf -- that's why I was so excited to see how amazing yours turned out!!Did you decide on a finish yet? PebbleSheen is awesome! I was so happy when I finally could walk on my shelf. it felt "grippy" but not scratchy. I did not kneel down on it yet to feel it on my knees, too cold right now
