We finished our build a couple weeks ago. Overall the process went well. Here is what I have (some is functional):
20x46 rectangle IG vinyl liner- ~35,000 gallons
500lb sand filter
1.5 hp single speed pump
400K BTU NG heater (not functional)
SWG (not functional)
2 laminar jets (not functional)
Ever since completion, we've had rain every other day so we haven't been able to get power and gas to the equipment pad. We have been running the pump on a 100' extension cord to keep the water circulating through the filter. We have been maintaining low chlorine levels until the SWG is up and running, but that process has taken way longer than expected.
Due to the weather we also haven't been able to get sod laid, so our pool is surrounded by dirt. Here's the issue. Over the past 24 hours we've had almost six inches of rain along with wind gusts of up to 70 mph. This morning I woke up to water so muddy I couldn't even see the returns and the water was halfway up the coping.
The PB has been helping me keep the water in check, but I kind of freaked out today and did something hopefully not too dumb. Due to the filthy water and the low chlorine levels we were maintaining I went a little crazy with the bleach. Here are my recent readings:
I am starting to freak out that the chlorine is way too high and will ruin...something. Obviously new to pools but looking for a little confidence and don't think it will come from the pool builder.
