Hi all. We opened our pool this weekend, just finished topping off. I ordered a K2006 kit, but from the basic kit I know Chlorine is 0 and ph is a little below normal. I also am starting to see some floating algae in the pool. I added some algaecide the previous owners left us, should that resolve it or do I need to take a more aggressive approach? Also I am going to Walmart to pick up some liquid chlorine, how much should I start with to get up to semi-normal until my test kit arrives?
Also some equipment questions, hoping someone can help tell me what this is?
Also I noticed the pressure guage is rusted out, so I looked it up online and ordered the replacement parts, should I worry about this or is this common?
Lastly other than what I've learned here by reading the last couple days, I know nothing about pool maintenance. The owners left us this, do I need any of this?
