Well, We have taken the big dive of purchasing our 1st home, but only wish we could take a "real dive" into the beautiful pool! The pump broke when we were out of town, which was just before we were able to have pool school to get educated on the pool, pump/equip, etc. We came home to a swamp! Now the pump is fixed, we have pool school this Monday, but are trying to get ahead on the algae. I was recommended to this site from one of my co-workers (thanks Craig, from Parkland, in Dallas!!!) and have started reading....BUT....I need a little more help. I received my TF kit and here are my numbers:
Our pool is about 26K gal, irreg oval, with a half circle spa that runs over into the pool and has a sand filter. So far, we shocked (last night) with 4lbs of "Shock Plus" and repeated the same this morning. We have been running the pump since last night.
Can you help with our progress, goof-ups , and suggestions?
