Just moved into a new home with a 7k gallon fiberglass pool that is about 10 years old. It has a newer Sta-Rite SuperMax pump and Pentair Cartridge filter. It currently has a tablet/stick chlorinator. The previous owner did a fantastic job from what I can see keeping the pool clear, but im a rookie when it comes to a pool and the inner workings. I attached a couple pics.
A couple quick questions:
1) For the chlorinator, what kind of tablets/sticks should I use and how many should be out in the canister at one time (more during summer than winter??).
2)What do the valves do on my current setup and what is the optimal setting I should keep it on versus the setting needed for the pool vac (Hayward).
I welcome any suggestions you guys can add in addition to my questions. You guys are the experts!
