I bought a house this past winter and it has a pool and I have never owned one before. The only information I could get out of the previous owner was who installed the pool so I turned to them for information and they have been nothing but rude to me. Apparently the guy I bought the house from still owes them quite a bit of money and they have decided to take it out on me. I have called them multiple times and have never had a called returned. I even stopped by their store to explain to them I was not an acquaintance of the previous owner and told them I would even pay them up front if they would just help me get the salt system running. They filled out a work order with my info and then never called me back and have not stopped by the house.
So anyway, so far I have been figuring the pool out on my own with the help of some friends. The pool is 16,000 gallons and has a Hayward Aqua Plus Automation and Chlorination system. I have all the chemistry levels set except the salt and am ready to add it. My questions concern the settings on the chlorine generator. What percentage should I have it set at to start out and when should I change it if at all? My second question is about the super chlorination setting. If I understand it correctly super chlorination is like shocking the pool. If that is the case how often should I use the super chlorinator and how many hours should I set it to run?
Any info would be great
