I am new at pool ownership and this is our first year opening the pool. We got the water level up, pump running, brushed, vaccumed,backwashed (all day) and water seems pretty clear. I am going out to get the test kit tomorrow to start checking the water. I have an aqua comfort SWG and I am guessing we will have to add salt at some point. I'm just not sure when to do that.
My SWG showed an error message of "no water" , "water fault" for about 8 hours of the filter running. Then it must have suddenly realized it had water and the fault light came off. whew!
I am also trying to calcuate how much water the pool holds. It is 18 x 28 x 43 L shaped vinyl pool with a Hayward sand filter and hayward 1.5 hp pump. According to the calcuator on this site, it should be around 35,000? That seems high to me. Help?
