Pump can run at whatever flow rate you use for skimming. No reason to run it any higher rpm.

Deep cleaning the filter was mentioned. The pool has been in the hands of a weekly service until the last month when i took over. I don't know if the sand filter has ever been cleaned.

Sounds good! pH test is invalid as your FC is above 10 ppm. Test pH after your FC drops.

Looks good. Maintain the FC by testing every day and adding chlorine to keep in target range. No need to test TA, CH, and CYA every day. FC and pH every day for now. TA once a week. CH and CYA monthly.

You can add some muriatic acid to lower the pH to 7.6 at your convenience.
