Recently purchased house (October 2013). It was a foreclosure and pool was dark green. Pool is fiberglass and installed in 1995. I hired someone to bring back water. In the process, we found 3 metal bar stools, a 25" tube TV with the tube shattered and various other items in the bottom of the pool. Water is crystal clear now. There are some rust stains here and there and the first 14" or so of the vertical wall in the deep end is stained brownish. Pool service tried a few different stain treatments without success. Might try working on the stains again in a few months - not a priority right now.
I still have a pool service while I learn from Pool School. I need assistance with gallons calculation. Each website I try gives a different result from 13k to about 18k. My pool is kidney bean shaped.
15' x 32' (Outer dimensions including coping band)
The first 9.5' are 3' deep x ~14' wide
The next 9 feet are 5'4" deep x ~ 14' wide
The final 10.5 feet are 7.5" x ~14' wide
There is a ledge about 3' down in the middle and deep portions of the pool
What would you estimate volume at?
My first attempt at TF-100
FC = 2
CC = 0.5
TC = 2.5
CH = 425
TA = 100
CYA = 40
Ph = 8.0
Above the water line, the fiberglass is smooth, below the water line is rough, mild milkiness if I rub the walls below water line. My cartridge has a white film each time it is rinsed that leave white flakes in my grass.
Thanks for any input!
