Just bit the bullet and purchased a Goldline AquaRite chlorine generator to install on my 20'x40' inground pool that came with a house purchase last fall. I added a chemical closing kit prior to covering the pool with a safety mesh cover (drilling 36 holes in the concrete decking was no fun!) shortly after moving in the new home.
Plan on installing the SWG and uncovering the pool sometime next month. What steps do I need to take in order to begin using the SWG other than the addition of salt? Will I need to get the pool chemistry correct prior to using the SWG? Should I add a start up kit? The system is also equipped with a frog mineral system. Do I need to replace the mineral cartridge in this system since I will be using the SWG? What is the best test kit recommended to keep my water checked?
Also have acquired an Intermatic P1353ME timer to install on the pump and SWG to reduce the operating cost of running the system 24/7. What would be the recommended hours of use necessary to keep a 40,000 gal pool in good condition? What hours should I run the pump and SWG (day or night).
I apologize for all the questions but, being a new pool owner I haven't a clue other than the invaluable info I have read on this forum!
