Okay,dumb question but shouldn't the water have a smell of chlorine??? I dont' smell anything at all in the water.
Brand new pool, installed last week, was sold Baquacil with the pool and had added the Baquacil Alkalinity increaser and calcium hardness and almost started with the Baquacil Sanatizer.....stopped just short of that, Thank Goodness and switched to chlorine instead! Anyway, added 4 bags of Burn Out shock yesterday morning and the day before that the Stabilzer (CYA?). I was told to add the Back Up algaeside but have not per a post here saying it's not needed. And, told to put tablets in my skimmer which again was told not needed. Soooo, I did the test with the PH and everything looks as if it's where it should be but I am just wondering since I don't smell any chlorine in the water at all. (btw, I do have my good test kit on order so I can get real #'s soon! )
The pool gets full, direct sun from about 8:00am until about 2:30-3:00 pm every day, then shade.
HOw often should I vacuum? I do also have an automatic that came with the pool....not sure how great it is though. It's called Dirt Demon, I believe.
I have a 27 foot round with a 2HP, 2 speed motor. Should the pump run 24/7?
How often should the filter be washed/rinsed, etc? (don't have a sand filter)
Hmmm. think that's all I can think of right now!
