Today we took possession of our first home with a pool. Before I found this forum a couple days ago, I knew precisely zero on how to properly maintain a pool. I know slightly more than that now, but not much. A couple days ago, I ordered a TF-100 and it's the way but not due to me until Wednesday.
So I have zero data; don't know the size, filtration, surface or any of the exiting water chemistry. We saw the pool on Monday and it was clear then.
We'll be at the new house tonight and I'm going to gather as much info as I can about the size, filtration and surface.
What should I do until Wednesday? I don't know the chlorine levels, but I don't want them to get low or zero. I also don't know how much to run the pump. Hopefully I can find a timer tonight.
Thanks for any advice. I'll start filling in my signature with pool info when I get it.
