Here is the rundown...we have a 34,000?? (3.5'-8' 20x40) gallon pool with pebble sheen finish...we filled it with well water last week...here's the chem specs...waiting 30 days to add salt...it was shocked on Monday (5 days ago)
Ca Hardness: 70
Here is what the pool store lady wants us to do> Never turn off the pump, keep it going 24/7, right now we have it turning over the water once...about 10 hours on...this didn't sound right..
She said to put 45 pounds of Hardness Plus in right now..b/c our water was soft...then add Calcium to bring it up (about 25 pounds) a day later (24 hours apart)..then reshock on Monday (we were told to shock it once a week)...we're testing it every week, but we're about to go on vacation for 12 days and house sitters won't know what to test for..does this sound like the right thing to do?
