Good day. Just bought a house in Nov. 2014, Katy Texas, came with a pool, my first pool. The realtor recommended a pool guy...long story short I got the water tested today and have some concerns.
From Leslie's water analysis:

A couple weeks ago the pool guy left a note saying the chlorine was low and that they added shock.
Today when I checked the SWG it was flashing red and wanting salt, the chlorination setting was set to 20%. The cleaner pump is not working, just does not turn on at all, has been like this for days I figure.
There is some yellow/green stuff on the edges of the steps spa and in the pool, it could be algae but there is allot of yellow pollen where I live so cannot say for sure.
Anyway, today I added about 60lbs of salt and turned the SWG to 40%, I am now thinking I should set it to 100% and let it run for awhile.
So, so far I am glad I found this site, seems to be allot of info here and really it is time I get after this myself. The pumps have two settings, there is this control system...so much to digest...
This weekend I am going to order the test kits recommended on this site. In the meantime I have to work with Leslie's to sort things out, would appreciate any info. or advice along the way, will report back with new test results soon.
