I purchased a home with a pool that is in what my wife calls an Atrium. The pool is oval 12x20x4 and the room it is in is 30x40 and is attached to the house. It is not a conditioned space. The perimiter of the room is made out of sliding glass doors and fixed glass panels (3 sliders and 16 panels). The roof of the Atrium is about 45' slope and has a ~20x20 glass sectioned panel. The room faces southeast so we get plenty of light in the afternoon. With good sun the room has been about 20' warmer than it is outside. We just purchased the house in December so I am waiting to see how the room is in the summer. I would imagine it will be very hot and very humid. I am planning on installing an attic fan in the end wall of the room to help with ventilation.
We have drained the pool and are in the process of some repairs and painting right now. I will be filling the pool in the next couple of weeks and need to know...
When I start treating this pool should I consider it an indoor or outdoor pool? I guess the main difference would be the amount of CYA to use or whether to use it at all. I have ordered the test kit that everyone recommends here and will be posting for some detailed help when I have the water in but in the mean time I am trying to prepare and make sure that I have everything on hand to give the BBB method a try.
If I should use CYA how much should I try to maintain?
Thanks for the help!
