    Taking over RV Camp Ground Pool for summer.

    OK So I arrived here to find a very nice clean sparkling water in the pool. Lots of small leaves floating around but have been cleaned up most recently with no obvious problems.

    3-10-16 Test
    FC 0
    PH 7.8
    Alk 60
    CYA 90-100

    So I am thinking I dump 56% right off the bat using pool math to lower CYA.

    3-12-16
    Water (Well on property) is now refilling after draw down.

    3-13-16
    Filling pool cont.......About 18" left to be topped off.
    Dropped 2 gallons of 10.5% bleach until it tops off just to get cranking on getting to a OCLT asap.
    Tonight's reading:
    C=12 ppm @ 20:45 hrs.
    23,000 Gallon In Ground Pool Masonry Plaster finish and 36" surrounding walk.
    Sand filter by Triton II w/1HP pump. Using K2005 Taylor Complete (High) Test Kit
    Use: RV Camp Ground Medium-Heavy load w/approximately 65 campsites. Water is supplied from well on property.

    Re: Taking over RV Camp Ground Pool for summer.

    If I am correct a pool at a commercial campground would fall under the definition of a “Public swimming pool” in Florida. There are a host of regulations including required training for the pool operator and specific methods of additions of chemicals. You may want to verify this as I may not be correct.

    Well that was a nice thing to find! At least you will not have to fight a green monster right off the bat.

    Here are the requirements. Looks like a 16 hour training course is required for sure.

    Sounds like you are all over it!

    Good luck.

    Quick question: How do I save the "Pool Math" page so that I don't have to continually place the input each time I visit? If this is the wrong place to ask I apologize if I need redirected please feel free.

    if your browser is set to not accept cookies, then pool math won't recall what you put in.

    Great!! Now, after - not before you take the class read this thread: Certified Pool Operator (CPO) training -- What is not taught

    As it has things that may "conflict" with what is taught wait to read it. Pass the class first.

    Re: Taking over RV Camp Ground Pool for summer.

    Yes, I will and probably have a good idea of what it says.....I have been maintaining pools for 3 years now as a "workamper" in various parks and the knowledge of the "CPO's" at each park has dumbfounded me to this day. I made every attempt to get them to subscribe or at least read the valuable info on "troublefreepool.com but to my surprise they declined to change treatment methods that are archaic and sometimes the reason for the problems that confronted them. Hey, Im just a workamper, Ill do what ever you tell me....your the one that has to answer to the inspector.....I made it a point to be there to see the outcome and was not surprised how "flexible" some of the inspectors become due to this level of inadequate knowledge and understanding by some pool operators. I am a great fan of this site, how can anyone not be?

    Welcome to TFP, and thank you for the kind words. It's sounds like you get it very well already, so I'll just say I hope you enjoy your time here.

    Numbers look pretty good all round' but watch your pH for creep up. Pretty flexible with your low CH level, so no panic there. You can quite likely look at using Cal Hypo some if it makes sense cost wise. I know Florida is loaded with bleach suppliers, so that is something you'll have to decide on.

    PS

    I enjoyed your background story on the different folks. The beliefs and amount of knowledge you find never cease to dumbfound me either. It's truly amazing sometimes.
