Okay, here goes. I tested her water---
She's added a ton of bleach...I keep telling her that it is just burning up without the CYA. I had my hubby get her some today(I will take it to her tomorrow). She also put in a bunch of clarifier....I'm not sure on what that does??? She filled the pool with well water, not sure if that matters or not?
Here are the pictures. This pool was installed in the 70's. I looked and looked and could not find any separate valves for main drain. I dove into the deep end and clear out all the leaves and junk in the main drain. There is a hole in the bottom that has a black "plug" with silver cap on it that has a wing nut looking thing on top. And then a second hole that has VERY week suction. I assume that's the one that goes to the skimmer.
Under the skimmer basket there are two holes. One has suction when the filter is on. The other doesn't feel like it's doing anything. I think it's the one from the main drain??? There is a "flap" that moves over the one hole, but, doesn't cover the hole that has the suction. I think she needs a diverter(from what I read on other posts). I had my hubby ask the guy at the pool store....and he had NO IDEA what I was talking about
Okay, I think I covered everything...any help is greatly appreciated
