Good morning, I was referred here by a friend and have been reading up on pool care here for about a year and have a couple of questions. As background my wife and I bought a house about 18 months ago with an approximately 33,000 gal inground pool. This is my first experience with pool ownership and it has been a challenge, although we do have a couple of pool stores nearby who seem to be compentent and honest although not inexpensive. They helped us close after moving in and we used them for testing and chemicals last season. My intention is to take control of this thing myself and minimise the cost and work as much as possible. Unfortunately the pool was in worse shape than we thought and as a result last summer we just about re-did the entire thing, new steps, liner, pump, resurfaced the concrete and replaced the fence. I am planning to go to BBB using the liquidator. I want to add a timer to the pump, and wonder how long I should set the daily runtimes, at least to start with. Also I would like to calculate the pool size more accurately(for use with the pool calculator on this site). Could that be done by adding a chemical or salt, If I decide to add salt, and testing for the change in PPM? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
