Long story short, bought house 4 years ago. Came with the pool. Used Lesliepool to test and treat for the first year. Got sick of making the 20mi drive and spending 40$ every week with unsatisfactory results, so I got a pool guy...
Pool Guy was great for the first year and a half...then it started going south...
Got rid of pool Guy back in December...
Drained pool... pressure washed the .5" of DE off of everything... found what pool guy broke... Replaced the backwash valve in bottom of the filter...
filled pool with well water, tossed two tabs in the skimmer basket.
Took sample to lesliepool yesterday.
Free Chlorine = 0
Total Chlorine = 0
Calcium Hardness= 320
Cyanuric Acid = 0
Total Alkalinity =250
PH = 8
Acid demand = 2
Copper = 0
Iron = 0
Total dissolved solids = 0
Phosphates = 200
Added .5gal of muriatic acid last night, let pump run for 4hrs per lesliespool's recommendation
Guessing pool is 30,000 gal, pebble tech surface
Have had high pH from day one
I know I need to get a test kit, Just haven't pulled the trigger on one that fits my needs.
I'll try to add some pics in a second.
My question... what do I need to do to make it look like a pool not a pond?
