We've decided that a SWG is for us, and I have some questions:
Let me start with the numbers, which are... not so good:
I suspect we have algae. We had a copper system for 2 years, but we were part-time residents and the pool guys who took care of it... didn't! We removed the system, and I'm trying to balance using bleach and muratic acid. I don't know for certain if it's copper staining or algae, since it's just a grayish-green cast over the entire pool, but the FC levels drop, significantly overnight, sometimes as much as 3.0 - 5.0.
We've decided that we're going to drain the pool and start fresh with the SWG.
We are having a new solar heater installed next week.
The SWG contractor is coming out to give us the $$ on Friday, but I don't yet know when the install date will be.
I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the components of this. Any advice on what to do first, or what not to do, in order to have a successful changeover to SWG?
