    Swimmer in VA

    Hello group. Briefly read this site parts of last year, will likely become more involved this year (beg for help), as I was frustrated with pool chemistry last year. (Burning eyes even with brief underwater eye opening)

    Any rate, I have a 14x34' IG. Just opened late last month, we use a tarp, so opened to clear water. Just laid solar blanket yesterday, needs a final trim soon. Also replaced swollen chorinator O ring and attempted to clean gum like residue off cap threads which I theorize is why the cap threads on/off so hard. I'll fill out my sig before I start officially begging for help though. Looking forward to the community.

    Ah yes, north western VA here. Apart for the nonstop recent rain, we typically have some lovely swimming days coming up.

    14,000 gallon rectangle vinyl pool. 4' depth throughout
    Hayward SP2605x7 3/4 HP pump and S-220T sand filter (23 GPM filter rate) with SP0714T multi-port valve.
    Inline chlorinator
    T104R pump timer

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
