we are closing on the hose June 24th if all goes well. I went out to the house yesterday to do some measuring, check out the pool equipment, etc....
Here is what I found:
When I was at the house three weeks ago there were a few patches of what appeared to be floating algae, but the water was clear. I could see the drains pretty clear in the deep end. Now it's starting to get pretty black & nasty.
The pool is 20'x30' (not including the steps)
The attached spa is 8'x4'
The pool and spa were renovated a couple of years ago by Blue Haven. What I read online left me feeling not so good about them, but supposedly everything works fine. The plumbing looks to be well done & all of the valves are labeled. Here is what I know of the equipment All Blue Haven branded Hayward stuff from what I could tell:
Hayward cartridge filter
2 HP SmartMax pump (Hayward TriStar?)
Pentair Model 230 inline chlorine feeder
Lots of valves... One labeled "cleaner".
A timer box on the wall
AquaComfort heat pump (AC-150 I think)
Silencer Jr. 2HP spa blower
The seller is supposed to open the pool and get it cleaned up prior to closing, so I shouldn't have too much of swamp this summer, but in the pump room there were several buckets of triChlor, so I may have to do some draining/ filling to get the CYA in check.
Question: Can anyone tell me what this may be:
It's screwed down to the walkway off the back of the pool room. It's right smack in the middle of the walking path if you go out the sliding door. I've tripped on it more than once.
Looking forward to getting this pool back into shape & having some fun this summer!
