I recently purchased a home with a 34,000 gallon L shaped in ground pool. The previous owners apparently had not kept up with adding chemicals for several months.
I have sand filter, Vinyl Liner, Tiger Shark bot cleaner
Two weeks ago I took a water sample to local pool store.
pH: < 6.3
The water was never green just a little hazy
Now 2 weeks and $450 of chemicals later I am at. (to be fair I probably still have ~ $100 that are not used yet)
Water is clear
Since this test they have had me add 4.6 lb of pH down, and 25 lb of Ca Hardener, I have not re tested water since then.
I have been reading pool school, and so far I have ordered the F-100 pool test kit.
Do y'all have any recommendations, also I am running my filter 24/7 that seems to be to much from what I read up her but pool store told me I was supposed to. Sorry for all the questions, this pool has just been so much more frustrating than I was expecting. Thanks in advance.
