I Just registered here and will be posting over in the intro threads. I bought a house with a salt water pool last August. It hasn't been used in a couple of years so I figured I'd document/ask questions in this thread in case it helps anyone else out and will give me an easy place to document what is going on. I have printed out some pool school stuff and the sticky on how to bring my swamp back to an oasis. I'll put specifics here this evening and add to my signature. I am about to start filling my pool to the skimmer this weekend as it is about 1-1.5 ft below. During that time I will be reading and learning what to do. My main concern is regarding the sand filter and pump equipment it turns on and that is about all I know. I plan on having the local pool service come by and verify my work and check on things unless you guys think it is easily done without their help. I was planning on ordering a taylor K-2006 kit testing and following the swamp method if everything powers on. I have never even seen the pool work, the house was empty when we bought it. So I am not sure of the rules and valves to open/close in order to turn it all back on. Maybe pictures and some helpful input will get me through .
