Been lurking for for about a week now and finally decided i had to post.
Just moved in to our new home a week ago and got started on the pool. Pool was previously maintained by a pool guy. He did a poor job. DE filter without a multiport valve so I can't backwash. I'm going to have to remove the filters and hose them off. Current pressure at 15. Hayward pump runs for about 8 hours a day. I'm also using the Aquabot I used at my old house.
Water is crystal clear but here are the numbers:
FC - 11.8
PH - >8
CYA - 360 (After diluting sample, this number may be off)
I am going to drain about 85% of the water on Monday (Weekend vacation). My question is..... Do I have to slam the pool once filled even though I don't have an algae problem?
FYI.... I'm going to be using Chlorox Bleach, Borax, and Baking Powder. Some conditioner if the level drops below 30 after refill.
Thank you guys in advance. This forum rocks.
