    Exclamation Need help for pool sustainment

    I'm a United States Marine and I have been tasked out with maintaining a 25m x 10m pool which is critical to our mission accomplishment. I have never maintained a pool before, if anybody could give any pointers such as which chemicals to use and the amount of chemicals to use that would be great. I have uploaded photos of the pumps and filtration system. If anybody has any knowledge of preventive maintenance or known issues with this system it would be greatly appreciated for any suggestions. I have uploaded the photos...IMG_0730r.JPGIMG_0736r.JPGIMG_0755r.JPG

    Start here:
    Pool School - ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry
    Pool School - Getting Started

    Since it sounds like you're military, do you know if you're allowed to maintain your pool like a private swimming pool, or do you need to follow guidelines for public pools?

    As a followup note in the US public pool standards are not uniform, they vary considerably from state to state, I don't know if the military has their own standards. Often we see these standards were written 40-50+ years ago and have never been updated to reflect emerging (if you can call 30+ year old data emerging) scientific knowledge.

    Army Pool Maintenance Manual - https://www.wbdg.org/ccb/ARMYCOE/COETM/tm_5_662.pdf Circa 1986, but some interesting stuff in there.

    Why am I not surprised? Original Poster - you may need to consult the Marine or Navy handbook on swimming pool maintenance to stay out of trouble.
