Our new inground pool is due to be finsihed this week (just waiting on plaster), and I have been doing a lot of research to make sure I properly maintain the swimming pool for comfortable year-round swimming.
I am interested in automating as much of the process as possible. The pool has an ozone sanitizer with a cartridge filitration system and a Goldline/hayward PS8 controller.
I noticed they sell an add-on system for maintaining ORP and PH. the AQ-CHEM and AQ-CHEM2. Does anyone have any experience with this product or can the recomend a similar system for automating the balancing of my swimming pool water?
Also, I understand that with the Ozonator I still need a small residual amount of chlorine in the water, is it better to automate this process as well, or will testing the water and adding the neccessary amount of chlorine peridoically be suficient? How frequently should I check my chemical levels?
