Hello all and man am I glad to have found you! So I recently purchased a house with an in-ground pool that is 12' x 32' save for a middle section that widens to 14' then back. I have depths of 3.5' on the shallow end to 9' on the deep end. I have enclosed a quick sketch I made of the pool. So here are a few questions
1) When calculating pool volume, is it the max depth or average depth for the calculator?
Filter is a sand filter, plaster IG pool. The pool gets approx 10hrs of sun a day right now. 001.jpg
The water was tested this morning, I took it to a pool store and I am in the process of purchasing a test kit from here. The water is mostly clear with some light algae growing on the steps where the shade 1st hits the pool.
Free Chlorine: 0
Total Chlorine: 0
Calcium Hardness: 350
Total Alk: 110
Total Dissolved Solids: 1800
I had a falling out w/a tweeker pool guy so I cancelled his service. The pool has a floater with a 3" chlorine tab and thats it.
So I'm looking at adding chlorine for sure, liquid to keep from adding more CYA. I would like some feedback on chemicals and a better estimate on the volume of my pool. Thanks and have a great day!
