Ok, I want to put all the correct info in my signature but I honestly don't know what I have. So far I have had multiple pool services open/close my pool and I've relied on the pool stores to tell me what I need. I'm ready to do things myself. I've ordered the t-100 kit and magnetic stirrer. I have been using a Nature2 system since installation in 2005. The first few years it seemed to work but by 2007 I began to have so much trouble keeping chlorine (according to the pool store tests). I am used to shocking every week, using black magic mustard powder, and PhosFree since we have phosphates. I know now from reading pool school that all of the stuff I've been told is a lie. I want to cry at all the wasted $$$. Mustard algae is a constant nuisance even though the pool looks pretty clear.
I have posted all the info I know in my signature but would appreciate help identifying the sand filter info and pump info (I believe it is just a 2.0) so I can put it in my signature. The sand was last changed in 2011. Pool was not opened in 2012.
Very excited to get my test kit and actually learn how to take care of my pool. Thanks!
