After some help with how to set up my pool for this coming winter.
Reading a bit on here, people seem to empty out lines etc but as we don't get to freezing point over Winter I don't think that's necessary here?
We turned the heat pump off 2 weeks ago and the water temp is now down to around 65deg.
I have reduced the pump running time right down to 4 hours per day, running from only midday to 4pm each day.....however I am now starting to get some algae build up along the sides even though my Chlorine levels are quite high? I think I will change the setting for the pump to run 3-4 hours in the am and another 3-4 later in the day so its not sitting still for long periods.
My test numbers yesterday before the pump turned on were:
Cya 0 (My SWG doesn't recommend any CYA in the water?)
With the above should I be getting any algae? I would have thought with FC of 5 I should have been fine. My pool builder told me I need to have the salt level at around 3200, last week it dropped to 2800 and my SWG told me the level is low. The SWG manual tells me salt level should be 4000, guessing I should do as the manual says?
A few questions above I know.....but any advice on how I should have things set would be great.
Keen to have things sparkling, at minimum costs over winter.
