Being a new pool owner I’m looking for any experienced advice. My pool is a 3,000 gallon salt water plaster pool. Pump, cartridge filter and salt water generator all Pentair. The heater is a Aqua Cal Super quiet. Pool was completed and filled with water 10/20. Salt was added at start up early April. This week heated pool for the first time maintaining water at 84 degrees. Pool pump runs 24/7
So far no water issues. Looking for any thoughts. Thank you

Welcome to the forum!
How are you testing your pool water chemistry?
If you could provide more detail in your signature, that would be great. What model pump, what filter, what SWCG?
I suggest you read ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry.
