Bought a house with a pool in September, just opened it last week for the first time.
Pool is 24x48 and I believe 33,000 gallons.
I had a local pool guy open my pool. Great experience! Company was very knowledgeable and very helpful. He sent me to this site saying I would get good info here.
I have an automatic pool cover. It's going to take a few weeks for my water to get warm. The weather is supposed to be ehh all week, so I plan to keep the cover closed. Should I still be running my pump for 12 hours a day even when covered for 24-48 hours straight?
I just purchased TF100 kit. I bought a barrel of chlorine hockey pucks from Costco a few weeks ago. My pool guy said they're not great, but I should use them. For pool shock I plan to use regular bleach. This ok? To raise alk I was planning to use baking soda. This ok too?
Looking forward to learning for you all.
