The first 4 weeks after your pool is filled with water.
- Brush the entire pebblecrete internal surface daily for the first 4 weeks.
The pools cement interior will start its crystallisation hardening process once mixed with water and the majority of it's internal chemical hardening will take place within the first 28 days.
This critical time period is when a pool interior finish is at its most susceptible to staining, scaling and discolouration. Daily brushing and constant monitoring and adjusting of the pool water is mandatory during this period.
Brushing and monitoring chemical adjustments will be mandatory by the homeowner or a trained pool technician during the service life of any pool surface
- Test pool water and balance it to the recommended levels below
Total Alkalinity (TA) 100-200ppm (Ideal 120)
pH 7.2-7.8 (Ideal 7.4)
ALWAYS ADD A CHEMCIAL TO WATER, NEVER WATER TO THE CHEMICAL.
Allow some time for the water to balance out. Take it slowly and add only one chemical at a time. Allow for one full turnover (usually 12 hours) before re-testing and make another adjustment if needed
