Long story short we bought a house with a pool that was installed in 2010 last July (northern south carolina). Since it was our first pool, we had service for a little while by a company and he gave us very basics on how to measure. We bought a kit, and ditched him towards the end of the season and the last few weeks took care of it ourselves. Now I'm certain, he gave some bad tips (i.e.) in the summer pump needs to run about 18 hours a day, etc. Now its time for me to really know how to keep my pool. I have some pictures and was hoping someone could just label some of the valves/pipes as to what they expect they do. It's a chlorinated system, that I think I'm going to convert to salt water in the next few months myself. The pool guy estimated 12/15000 gallons (I calculated less guessing), but I really dont know for sure. I think I'm going to drain it half way this year and refill. At the end of last season the CYA was high, although when we had the pool guy come by he was like it's a little high, but you're still good.
