Hello all, We recently moved into a house with an in ground pool and I wanted some help with my test results and getting on the right track to crystal clear BBB water. I owned an above ground pool with SWG for the past two years and this site was key in me setting it up, maintaining it and keeping it running smoothly. We have been here for 4 weeks and I have been so busy moving that I have not had time to do much with the pool. Water still looks relatively good, some debris on the bottom, nothing a good vacuum can't take care of. The new equipment is intimidating me so I need a hand in figuring it out if possible. I have watched some you tube videos on vacuuming and other maintenance routines for IG pools.
I just ran my test results and will start by getting the FC level up by adding the recommended amount in the pool calculator. Let me know what else needs to be looked at and the order of importance so I can start working on the rest of the levels.
FC = 0
pH = 7.8 to 8.2
TA = 70
CH = 350
CYA = 40
Will add 207 oz of bleach now and let the pump run for the rest of the night.
Also, what type of maintenance/cleaning routine do I need to do with the Hayward DE 3620, it is brand new as the previous owner put it in about a month before we moved in. I have been reading alot about DE and adding DE, cleaning the filter etc. and I am not sure where to begin.
Thanks in advance for any help!
