My husband and I are super excited because we just purchased our first home, which comes with a nice pool. While I had an inground, Baquacil pool as a kid, I never paid attention to any of the pumps or anything. My job was cleaning the pool furniture and vacuuming the pool. The pool at our current house uses bromine. We have no idea what we're doing, and while my dad has said he'll come for a visit to help us figure it out, we were looking for some advice now. I've taken some photos of our pool (sorry, not sure of the size yet) and the pump system. I was hoping someone could explain everything that is going on. Specifically, could someone explain the different options on the Pac-Fab valve. I think this manual has helped a little, but it looks a bit different from the model we have (http://www.pentairpool.com/pdfs/Mult...aryValveOM.pdf). We're trying to figure out how everything should be set so we can vacuum.
Also, what are some recommended closing procedures? Besides bromine, what other materials will we need to treat the pool (in general, and for closing and opening)? Any advice is appreciated!
