Topic says it all. Got the keys to my first home mid-April (2013). The house was built in 2002. Previous owner then added an in-ground Gnite pool sometime after the initial purchase. Here is what I moved into.
- Pool is probably less than 12,000 gallons.
Pentair VS + SVRS Pool Pump
Solar Heater on a 2 story house (no solar controller)
Sta-Rite System: 3 Filtration Filter
Poolvergnuegen 2X Suction PoolCleaner
Everything I have seems to be fairly new. But a month and a half in and $600+ into the pool expenses already things aren't working right. I have a pool guy doing the cleaning and chemicals for the pool and still things aren't as they should be. Here is a list of all the things I have encounterd so far:
- Pool was green when I got the keys.
Hired someone on Craigslist to clean and service my pool. He charged $150 for the cleanup $65 a month.
3 weeks after the clean-up, the pool turned green.
As it turns out, this this pool guy I hired just finds new accounts, does the clean-up, then sells the accounts to someone else for a fee.
On the 3rd week, the pool guy that took over had to redo the clean-up and thankfully only charged me $50 (cost of chemicals) to get the pool back to blue.
Previous owner decided to make off with the pool cleaner. Spent $400 to buy the Poolvergnuegen.
After reprogramming the pump, somehow the SVRS system keeps kicking in and shutting down the pumping cycle
The pool cleaner doesn't run during the complete cycle because of this, so I have debris in pool.
And the pool is not getting heated through solar
Time to read and educate myself. Thanks for listening and hello TFP Forum Community!
