I'm doing my best with reading pool school as well as a book on Pool Maintenance (Tamminen, 2007; Ultimate Guide to Pool Maintenance) and am hoping for some pointers identifying my equipment.
I believe Yellow circle is my pump for the spa jets (must be filled with water prior to use, yes?)
Green circle is pump for pool.
Orange rectangle is a Chorine/Bromine Feeder (http://www.pentairpool.com/pdfs/R24294D ... erComm.pdf) -- I understand this may be a really stupid question for many, but I'm doing my best so please forgive my naivety, -- is this an automatic chlorinator that I fill will tablets? It seems to be from what I can discern from the pdf. And from this:
From what I understand about chlorinators, I can fill it with Triclor and it will control my chlorine for me. But having been to Pool School, I get the impression that Trichlor... bad. But it seems to me that this pool system was either designed or modified to handle Trichlor. Could someone please help me figure out what I've got. As I've said in my first post, I inherited a pool with the house. It is an inground, concrete pool measuring 17.6' wide,by 40.5' long. I'm assuming an average depth of 5' and estimate 26,700 gallons. I cannot find the instruction/guides for most of this equipment and the seller of the home flipped it and has no knowledge of the pool. A professional company (Deep Blue Pools and Spas, Utah) has opened it for me and I scheduled a cleaning for Tuesday June 4th. I want to make the most of this appointment and, hopefully, take over control of my pool. Any comments are appreciated. Please let me know if I am accurate in my identifying those three pieces. Thanks in advance.
