hi all....i'm ruth and live in australia......and i am hoping someone over there can give me a clue about pool maintenance. it looks like you have a different approach to chemicals and care of pools compared to the mainstream view, which interests me. my problem is that we have a new place and it has a ruddy large pool..20 metres by 7 average depth of 1.5...would not be my choice but this is what we have!
i figure it holds roughly 250,000 litres. it was green like the swamp from calcutta. last week i added big amounts of chlorine and a week later(today) vacuumed out heaps of sludge....it is finally clearing up! the little robot is scooting around doing it's thing. now here is the question.....what next?
i would love it if i could be given some sort of plan for care. just realised probably no-one is looking at this site as you are approaching winter unlike us....but maybe some are looking for info to winterise their pools. fingers crossed!
hope someone can help.
all the best and merry christmas as well
