I just moved into a house with a pool and things seemed to be going fine till earlier today. The pool guy comes once a week and does his thing and leaves but I feel like paying him is a waste of money cause im pretty much cleaning it every day. 1st questions I have is if a pool guy is worth the money or not? What do you guys think? 2nd and the most important of all I got my water tested at Leslie's today and they told me some things and got me kinda worried. They went over some of the levels with me and told me I needed to either drain my pool partially or completely. Not sure if thats the best idea so I figured I would post up the results and see what you guys can tell me. S
Free Available Chlorine 1.5
Total Available Chlorine 2
Calcium Hardness 760
Cyanuric Acid 110
Total Alkalinity 80
Total Dissolved Solids 3900
He also recommended that I shock my pool with 2 pounds of Free N Clear which I went ahead and did.
He estimated my pool to be 18000 gallons but I think it may be about 20000. It is an bellow ground pool I believe plastered and chlorine has been used thus far.
Any comments/help is greatly appreciated!
