Just joined the forum after reading a whole bunch of stuff. My wife and I just bought a house which has an AG pool, and I done went and mussed it up by being an impatient fool, so I'll be asking questions on how to fix my stupidity. I won't be able to post any readings (yet) as the previous owners didn't leave us with any test gear. In addition, I've never owned a pool before, so this should be immensely interesting to learn what all I need to do to get this thang squared away and operating as "maintenance-free" as possible.
Anyway, lots of great information here, look forward to chatting with some of you folks.
I think I got the signature part right, but I wanted to see if you folks had any ideas, since I don't have _any_ of the paperwork for it. So, here's the full rundown:
The pool itself is, I think, a 27' x 42" Hayward. The measurements aren't precise, but they're the best I could muster by myself - I'm not really sure if the pool is a 26' or 27', and I'm not sure if the sidewall is 42 or 48" (never mind that I can't find a manufacturer label anywhere on the thing).
The filter is a Hayward Sand Filter Pro Series S180T with a Hayward Variflow SP714T Valve.
The pump is a Hayward SP1510-Z-1-XB (which I think is a Power-flo LX? couldn't find anything online related to the part number), with a Magnetek 1.0 SPL, 1HP, 60GPM motor.
