Purchased a new home which came with nice pool (~2006), home inspector indicated it was in very good shape. pool has apparently had a new liner put in in 2014. Owners have been gone for 4-5 weeks and now I need to learn how to manage it...
Most of the equipment is in the signature - and also in attached picture. The two pipes running into house are apparently part of a water heating system. Tested water using Hach Aquachek strips - not too accurate, but I think I had no chlorine (free or total), pH=<6.8 and CA=0. Have been adding chlorine, carbonate and stabilizer for last 2-3 days. Brushed pool and found a Creepy-Crawler(?) in garage that seems to be working. I think I now have the following:
CA= ?? Maybe 20
Test strips seem to be open to interpretation.
Will need to learn how to clean filter. The pump does not seem to have an off-switch - do I just pull the cord (220V)?
Anything else I should be doing?
