I'm an Aussie who has just bought a property and this is my first pool. I grew up swimming in farm dams so this is a bit of a change for me!
My first mistake was to not get the pool equipment checked prior to our purchase.
The pool is salt water and about 30 000L and we are on 30ac and the pool is surrounded by bushland. We are heading into the summer months down here.
The pump and filter are both fine (am running them on a simple timer at the moment), though the controller unit is causing me grief. More often than not it will come up with a "no flow" error and shut down.
The local pool guy says the unit is faulty and has quoted for a new chlorinator etc. This is $1500 we don't have at the moment, and I am wondering if there are any other options available to me?
I work from home and have heaps of spare time, so that isn't an issue, and I am happy to put in effort rather than $$
Any help or advice would be great.
