Hi everyone, my name is Rich and I just purchased a 18X33 oval. I am very pleased with the install, with only a few minor issues that have been corrected by the installers. I am currently involved in having my pump wired per code. I had to move my whole pump/filter assemble farther away than initially placed. Needless to say, I am now very versed at how a Pentair sand filter operates !
My first question is about springtime tree debris that keeps blowing into my pool. I have a TON of flying debris getting into my pool, especially on a windy day. I keep my solar cover on, and this is helping out a LOT, but some debris still gets into the water. How often should I skim the debris out of the pool. My kids are not really swimming in the water yet as it's only 65F (but slowly rising!).
I purchsed pre-treated pool water, and so far everything tests in the "ideal" range. I did however purchase the suggested TF100 test kit, as the cheapo "see through" style kit my pool company gave me is vague and difficult to draw an accurate conclusion.
My second question/concern is with my filter's Pool Frog sanitizer. I am observing a slight amount of physicall "bouncing" stemming from the Pool Frog unit hanging off the top valve assembly. I think this occurance is going to cause issues, possibly breaking the top valve assembly if I don't do something to support the Pool Frog unit? Your thoughts would be great! Thanks for all the info this site is absolutely the BERRIES as far as knowledge! Heres a few pics of my new pool:
(sorry for the lack of landscaping, thats getting done in about 2 weeks...)
