I just put in my inground vinyl lined 29K gal salt water pool last year. I did hire someone to close the pool before winter, but I would like to open it up myself. I have read the "opening a pool" newletter from trouble free pools, but the local pool place is guiding me in a different direction. Help would be appreciated.
Tested results from pool store....
Total Chlorine 5.5
Free Chlorine 5.2
Tot. Alk 111
Adj Total Alk 102
Tot Hardness 92
Pool store told me not to shock the pool because my Chlorine levels were already high from last session. Is this correct?
They also told me not to put algie preventer in because my salt generator would take care of it?
The results tell me I should raise my PH. What about Tot Hardness and anything else.
Help is always appreciated....
