Hello everyone! I'm new to the pool thing and have some questions. I have already learned a lot just from looking around, but I know I will have more questions to come, and don't wanna bug the lady at the pool place with stupid questions.
So first let me give you a little background. The pool is at my parents house. My dad handled all the pool stuff, but unfortunately he passed away back in October at a young age, so now I'm taking care of the pool for my mom. We got a new liner put in a year ago. The pool was built in 2003 I believe. We got a SWG about 2 or 3 years ago. We had it opened about 2 weeks ago and just got back from my first water test of the year, here are the results...
Calcium hardness 125
I added 3 bags of salt, and 6 pounds of stabilizer. I also hit the two buttons on the SWG for 24 hours of 100% output. I also will add that the pool looks great, and has since we opened it up. Very clear.
So my first question, can you swim in the pool during the 24 hour 100% output? Not a big deal, but I figured I should know.
Second question, how often should I do the 100% output?
Third, solar salt ok instead of "pool" salt? I've heard yes, as long as it is 99.4% pure, and I've also heard you can but it contains organic material which can cause bacteria in your pool.
Fourth, there is a mineral sanitizer installed. The zodiac nature 2 express to be exact. What does that do, and it also says to change the cartridge?
And lastly (for now) it says to clean the SWG, how often and how do I go about doing that?
Thank you everyone!
