So, I see I am not the only person in the world who bought a house with a pool in the yard and no idea how to work the thing:
So, I had a few question about my equipment before I get into really opening the pool. First, there were some parts in the filter basket (hoping I am calling it the right thing). I figured where the pressure gauge goes. But, there were a few threaded plugs? and a bottle with teflon tape around it that for the life of me a cant figure out. Can anyone give me an idea where these may go on my setup? (and actually i think i found where one of the threaded plugs goes, theres a small hole at the bottom of the filter basket that i saw when i was taking my pictures)
Second question, the previous owner had the pool professionally closed last year. What can I expect they did to the equipment? Any of the pipes or tubes plugged or removed? Anything I should check before I try and start it up myself?
Third, I found the skimmer cover (didnt take a picture of it, now that i think of it), is there anything I will need to do in there before I open the pool? There seems to be some collected green/brown water in there which has me thinking it was plugged or something? Or is that normal for having sat over the winter with no circulation?
Ok thats it for the questions from my end. I should add I have a Hayward Virtical Grid DE filter and Pump (model number C48K2N143B1?) . I thought the model number on the filter was 710XR50, but searching around the net has me thinking that that is the valve not the filter.
Thanks for the resource and any help you can offer!
