filling a newly resurfaced pool

Postby thegman » Thu 20 Apr, 2006 21:01

We are having our pool refinished and its been years since I have done this.
Specifically, what chemicals are needed to get the pool up to speed? I seem to remember adding a stabilizer and having add chemicals to adjust the ph. other than that I only remember keeping the water adjusted baed on routine water testing.
Am I missing anything?

stabilizer - needed at start
pH adjusters - always needed
chlorine - always needed (unless use bromine or bigunides)
algeacides - always needed (unless use mineral systems)
floc - only when water is cloudy from fine dust
metal or calcium out - only for problem water
