Here is a set of links I put together for new pools. It is a lot of into but this will give you time to start learning it.
Print these out:
Pool School - Basic Pool Care Schedule
Pool School - Recommended Levels
Pool School - Recommended Pool Chemicals
Pool School - ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry
Make sure to ask any and all questions you might have no matter how small! We have all been where you are at one point.
Now is also when you should ask what test kit they are giving you. Let us know so we can fill in any holes.
Hey MS, You didnt hijack anything Your situation and questions added a good back and forth about drainage and I have been considering running a french drain in side yard to tie into the existing drain in front side yard. Keep chiming in!!I wasn’t trying to highjack the thread. Your pool looks great.
This is interesting. Thanks for the info Big E!There are a couple mobile R/O units operating in the Phoenix metro area. They can turn a pool over in one day with minimal water loss. Having this done once every three years is a better solution than having soft water run to your auto fill. R/O takes away all the other nasties that soft water won’t.
