Like many people, I'm closing on a house with a pool next week. The current owners didn't open it last year, and they're bringing in pool guys to drain, clean, and refill it before we close next week. I'm planning on going out to the house while the pool guys are working on it to ask some questions, but I don't know what I don't know. I've got a list of questions I want to ask below, but wanted opinions on if I'm missing something.
Size of the pool and number of gallons?
What type and HP of pump?
What type of filter?
How do I turn on and off the pump and heater?
Is everything still working?
I ordered my TF-100 yesterday, and hopefully with the new water I'll just have to bring the levels up and then keep them there. We're taking a few weeks to paint/clean before we actually move in, so would it make sense to use chlorine pucks during that time to bring the CYA up (I'll get an actual test once the new water's in) since we won't be there every day?
