My name is Mac (location California - San Joaquin County).
I am helping my parents at a house they bought last year, it has a nice pool (probably around 5 or so years old). It has been empty for the last few years; so i will be washing it and painting the plaster, which has never been painted. Here are more details about the pool:
- Around 28,500 gallons (US).
(The bottom of the pool is slopped, so i took the deepest distance. )
- Sta-Rite Pump P6E6Y4H-209L
- Sta-rite Filter system S8M150
- quikclean cleaning system
Here are all the pictures of the pool and equipment:

Now, i know nothing about pools but being somewhat of pool owner, i like to learn. Starting with completely cleaning the whole system and filling it back with water. It has Sta-rite S8M150 filter system and P6E6Y4H-209L pump, i took the both filters out and will clean them, throughly. That is all i know, at this point.
And I'm sure all the pipes also need cleaning and flushing; since the condition of the pool was pretty bad. Now where do i start and how do i clean all the other aspects of the system. The pool is also equipped with quikclean and I'm sure it will also need to clean and flush all those pipes.
Second important question: Its a large allot around 2 acres ( fenced) and will have small kids and maybe even some drunks fools around once a while who have no swimming experience, which is another huge concern to us (and i don't live there either). Now is there a solution and is there any way to keep the water level few feet lower. I know this may sounds stupid but if there is a solution for this, that will be great and peace of mind. Both (2) pool skimmers are at height of 3.5 and other around 6.5 ft (i was thinking of floating skimmers which i can attach to the original or something). And we really don't mind having much lower water level.
So, i need help, can anyone help me get started by providing some steps to get the pool in good shape, again, that will be great. thank you Mac
( and I started looking at other similar threads and most already have pool filled with water or completely different system and situation. )
