We are nearing the end of our new pool build. The pool is 16x35 Freeform shape, 5'6ft deep. My question is on our finish. The pool had mini-pebble Stonescape installed on Wednesday. The builder began filling up Wednesday night and came by Thursday to turn the pump on and put 4 galloons of acid in the water. He has instructed us to let the pump run 24-7, brush 2-3 times a day, backwash every 18hrs and put another 6 galloons of acid into the water on Sunday. Then continue running the pump, backwashing and brushing until Saturday the 4th when we can get in. Is this right? I feel like I am missing something. Shouldn't I be testing the water during this process and add chemicals before we swim? I am extremely frustrated and confused. I want to know what I need to do, test and when. Our pool is a salt water pool with a sand filter. All the help I can get would be appreciated. I am looking forward to them being out of my life and starting the BBB method!
