Greetings from New Jersey. Bought a new house, October. 2015 and it came with a pool. First time pool owner. When we closed in mid October, we had it closed and prayed all winter it was done right. Took the cover off on Mother's Day, she didn't even have to help, and it was clear down to the bottom of the deep end. Had it opened two weeks later and the problems began. First issue, the existing compu pool swg was leaking. Had a crack in the coupling threads. Could have bought a replacement cell, but decided to just invest in a new system. There was a build up of calcium on the blades, didn't know the age of it, so a new Pentair Intellichlor Ic40 was ordered. Next issue was a leak in the pump discharge side, and then the clear water began to change. As the pollen fell the pool darkened until it was a green murky mess. I removed the old swg, plumbed in the new bypass tube for the ic40 and fixed the pump leak. Also added an inline sacrificial anode. Started running the filter and Polaris to begin the process of cleaning up the mess. Added some shock and did some water testing, Taylor k2006c, things began to clean up. Consulted the pool store and Internet for some advice, because I'm clueless, and then I found tfp . Hoping to get some advice on any issues that arise...currently I'm trying to get the water clear. It's blue and fairly clear I think the shallow end. The plan for this coming weekend is to test all parameters again and keep filtering. Ill also get the ic40 hooked up and running once the water is balanced. Thanks for any advice.
