Im brand new to this pool thing and need some help. I got this pool from a friend andam rather clueless!! The pool is AG 18' X 48" and came with a cheap pump (1500 GPH) which doesnt seem to be working properly. The water has been in since Saturday (three days ago) and is still very clear and clean. The only thing I have done to date is add 1/2 bag of shock Sunday night and run the filter about 12 hours each day. I've decided to go with a salt water chlorinator and have ordered one online as well as a new pump 4000 GPH. My concern is that these items wont be in for about a week. Should I be doing anything else with this pool? I have test strips and It appears my total Chlorine is a 1, Free Chlorine is .5 - 1.0, Total Alkalinity 80, pH 7.8, and total hardness is 250.
Thanks for the help!!!
