I need some advice!
So my really good friend bought a house with a pool. As a housewarming gift, I ordered him a TFTest Kit which will arrive Tuesday, and went over this morning to test his water and help him get started. Three days ago he said that since he had bought the pool 11 days ago he had not done anything to it, but the water was still clear. Just to hold things together until I got there today I had him add a gallon of 12.5 bleach on Thursday. He also added 2 pucks to the skimmer.
I have no idea of the sized of the kidney-shaped, gunite pool. There is an old Ray Vac cleaner, a 48 sq ft DE filter, a 1 1/2 hp motor and, surprise! a ClearVision Nature 2 Natural Water Purifier thingy. What the heck is that? What do I tell him? It has a clear lid like the pump filter basket with what look like very, very large white bb's floating around in the top.
And, any help estimating how many gallons in the older Sylvan pool would be wonderful. 3 feet in the shallow, 8 feet in the deep end.
Test results today from my TFTest kit:
He was about to have 30+ people over to swim in a couple of hours so we estimated using 20,000 gallons and I did have him add 32 oz of cal-hypo 68% that was in the pool pump house.
Thanks in advance!!
