What should you do for the swimming pool after a really big rain?
This is the 1st rain we have had since the pool was installed and had not thought of what we should do.
This is what we did. Now what is the proper procedure?
We backwashed the filter for a really long time to get the pool level back to where it should be.
Right after the rain we doubled the setting on the SWG and ran the system for an extra 12 hours.
The light on the SWG was indicating LOW SALT so we checked the salinity and it was low so we added a bag of pool salt per the TFP pool app.
The next day the CL was 5.0 so we lowered the SWG to a little under our normal setting.
Added 3 capfuls of PhosFree.
Added a little cya stabilizer.
We adjusted the pH to 7.4
Brushed the pool
Used the leaf net to get all the floating stuff off the surface and most of it from the bottom and emptied the skimmer baskets several times.
So far we have not seen anything green growing in the pool but have heard horror stories about what happens to a pool after a heavy rain.
