You need to learn how to use Pool Math. Take a look and ask any questions that you have. If you're going to manage your pool yourself, you HAVE to know how to use it. A link to it is in the upper left corner of this page.I feel dumb asking .... "3ppm FC", how many ounces would that be?
I've been using a 20 oz. measuring cup to add the liquid chlorine.
I've been running the pump 24/7 as directed by SLAM instructions.
Now that my water is clear and 'numbers are getting in check' I've programed the variable speed pump to run 2 hours at 3000gph, 10 hours at 1400 and 2 hours at 2000. These are the Pentair preset pump times and speeds starting at 8am.
There is a bit of dirt on the pool bottom. Should I vaccum to filter or to waste? (I'd hate to "waste" any more water after the 4 partial drain and refills but certainly want to do this correctly)
