    signature created I hope

    Getting closer on getting into house. I found info on pool today

    The pool was built in 1971, older than I had hoped. it is kidney shaped and 31x16. I think 16 is its widest width according to paperwork. The average depth is 5.5 feet. Just as a funny in 1971 it cost $3500 to install. Wth these dimensions I guess it is between 19k and 20k. Please correct if needed.

    The pool is a major swamp. Some of the decorative tiles are missing. It does hold water. It was last opened maybe 3 -> 4 years ago.

    I needed a new pump, so I bought a used one back in May when the process of buying this short sale just started. It is a Sta-rite System3 S7m120 with 300 Sq ft of filter. Hope that is a sufficent size. Also a 1HP pump as well.

    I have a test kit in waiting as well since June

    Thanks

    I'll be lurking, too. Watching renovations is fun.

    Filter size is great. (I use that same filter.) See this sticky in the Pumping Station area of the forum: hydraulics-101-have-you-lost-your-head-t915.html

    What is your pump's maximum flow rate?
