So after a long protracted and painful process, it looks like I will be closing on our house in the next few days, but won't be able to move for a couple of weeks yet.
While down there earlier, I took some pics to post here, and got got some water tested in a local pool shop (yes I know, but I won't buy any of my own kit till I have keys in hand lol). The pool is around 30'x10'x5'
so the figures were;
FAC - 0
TAC - 0
CYA - 50
total alkalinity - 80
pH - 7.3
copper - 0
dissolved solids - 1300
Phosphates - 500
So a few questions if I may. It currently has a holder for the tablets in the pool, but as there were leafs in the pool this afternoon, I assume that the seller has stopped any pool service she had, hence it's empty. The pump was on on a timer, and making a strange noise, so I checked the leaf tracked with was all but clogged. I unblocked the basket, and it seems to have helped and stopped the noise. So, my question is, how long do I have till the pool starts to suffer, and maybe end up green? It has (I'm told) "pop up" cleaners in the base of the pool, and the pump is on a timer.
When the pop ups come up, there appears to be a good few bubbles rising aswell, does that mean I have an airleak on an 'o' ring on the pump/strainer?
I have also posted some pics, and would be very grateful if some one could tell me what I have, if it looks ok, and what I need to do to in the short term to make sure everything stays ok till we finally move in
Many thanks in expectation.
