My wife's aunt and uncle recently gave us their 27Ft above ground pool. They hadn't been using it for the past couple years and it had become a green eye sore.
This past couple weeks were spent taking it down, having sight work prepared at our house, and installing it at our house complete with a new filter and liner.
The pool is now nearly full (using water hose) and I am hoping to be able to turn the pump on tonight or tomorrow afternoon.
I have done a little research and have decided that I am going to try using the liquid pool chlorine instead of tablets or any other method, as I don't want to be unnessarily adding to much CYA or other things.
The pool is approx. 18,000 gallons. Can you give me an idea of the PPM levels that I need to shoot for? The product I am planning on buying says that for 1 PPM use 1 FL OZ in 750 gallons of water.
Also, I am thinking that I can get by with only running my pool pump for 8 hours in a 24 hour period... it states that it operates at 70GPM. I have read a few things that tell me at that rate my pool water will cycle in four hours, and that it should cycle twice in a 24 hour period. Also, should the 8 hours be continual, or 4 hours in the day and 4 hours during the night?
I haven't yet purchased at test kit, I know that the TF-100 is talked about quite often on here...though it seems a little pricey. Is it really worth the money?
Thank you to whomever helps me with my questions!! I really appreciate it, and hope that I can maintain a truly Trouble Free Pool!!!!
