I'm another foreclosed house purchaser. I just closed and am looking at the pool with its equipment like an alien mother-ship has landed in my backyard and demanded I maintain it... I came here, read everything I could find, ordered the TFP Test kit, played JR. chemist and got my results. I still have lots of concern and don't know where to start or if I'm executing this correctly.
Here are my results:
Even though there is a SWG it reads there is no salt in the pool...
So if I understand this I would dump:
80oz of 6% bleach
54oz of 31.45% 20 baume
210oz of liquid stabilizer
275lbs of salt
all into the pool?
This seems a bit scary. Should I use triclor instead of bleach since its side effects look like they'd help? Will dumping all that salt at once break anything? Change the levels? What order do I add stuff if any? Does the 115 degree summer days affect this? Aiyee too many questions.
Also, the pool pump is on 24-7. Seems a bit costly. Is 2 hours enough to leave it on?
Any input would be appreciated...
