I am new to this forum and to pools in general. I recently moved to Long Island in a 50+ year old house with an inground pool that severly required maintenance.
The pool was apparently closed for about 2-3 years and when I opened it up sometime in May, it was a pit of liquid darkness with a smell of death. I had a pool contractor give me options on what could be done, apparently all that was required was a new liner and a second drain to be installed.
Fast forward to now and the pool looks great:
I took a sample of the water to my local pool guy and buddy and these are the results:
Not sure what to make of it myself, but I was told to add shock if anyone were to go swimming (no one has yet). So far the pool has only had 4 chlorine tablets but I just had an SWG system installed and the salt was added yesterday.
Apparently my pools fills up with about 30,000 gallons of water and I was told to add 10-13 40lbs bags of pool salt. Since this is the first time using the SWG system, according to instructions, I am supposed to run the pool pump 24hrs without the SWG on and then turn on the SWG and run the pump another 24 hours.
I will be testing tomorrow when the SWG has had enough time to run and determine a proper salt ppm.
If anyone has any suggestions, or can correct me on what I am doing incorrectly then please feel free to share your thoughts of just say hi.
