Starter Chemicals after pool resurfacing

Postby el scorcho » Fri 16 Jul, 2010 10:38

Greetings- The resurfacing of my pool will be complete today. I know that I need to add starter chemicals and that they cost between $100-150. The contractor that is resurfacing my pool referred me to a service that will add the chemicals, and come back every day for a week checking the water, adding what is necessary, etc. The cost for this service is $300-350.

Is it worth it to have the guy come and do it or is it easy enough that I can do it myself?

Thanks in advance!

The company that made the product they used to refinish should have something that explains how to treat the surface. Read that and you should be able to judge the difficulty.

For example (if for some reason you can't find it for your particular finish), my pool's finish is from a company called premix-marbletite. Their start-up procedure is online at ... edures.pdf
