I moved from Western WA to AZ a few years ago and recently bought a house with a small pool. (Jokingly referred to around here as a "Spool"). It's about the size of nice above ground, but I don't know exactly how to figure out how much water it holds. It's an octagon shaped liner pool with a Nautilus FNS DE filter. Not sure of the filter size either. I can get that detail once the sun comes back up and I can see the equipment... I hope. I had a spa in WA for over 10 years, but this is a whole different animal. And I am having a nightmare of a time.
I have questions a-plenty. Everything from hi pressure & low suction to how I can diplomatically deal with a repair tech who insists that I am not capable of caring for a pool myself. I know there's a few things I can't do (taking the pump apart or disassembling the whole rack of plates inside the filter, for example). But I'm not "mechanically challenged" so there's no reason I can't do daily or weekly maintenance, right?
So I hit the internet - and I landed here. Thank you for creating a place where I might find some of the answers I seek!
I'm still trying to figure out exactly how to tell my story. Once I do, I'll be posting in "green pools"
