Not quite sure why cleaning this pool and keeping it in balance has become such a project, but it has. I've only been house sitting this house for a week but I didn't think pool maintenance is that complicated.
The pool immediately went green and we found there was ZERO chlorine in the water. We added the "floater" with chlorine tablets, vacuumed a few times and now added a "shocker" to make all the "green stuff" go to the bottom to be vacuumed.
I'm using a different pool maintenance guy because I think the previous was doing the minimum. Problem is as it gets warmer, rain water enters the pool and we use it more ... the more we need to stay on top of the chemical balance. I'm also adding water from the street rather than the well. Street water has some clorine added while the well has none
Then there's the pump, filter and maze of valves that needs to be understood to filter, back flush the filter and find a balance for the normal circulation timer.
