So the previous owners of the house closed the pool before we moved in,
and in doing so, they lowered the water level in the pool quite a bit.
(The pool guys who came ot open the pool yesterday explained that this
was not necessary and showed me how to avoid doing this when we close it.)
We have a water softener, and as I'm trying to fill the pool, the
softener wants to recharge every couple of hours, which is becoming
tedious and it's going to take me a couple days to get the water to the
correct level at this rate! Can I just turn off/unplug the softener,
then recharge it when I switch it back on? It's a Kenmore unit, and I
can't really find anything in the manual addressing this issue.
Thanks for any advice. Unfortunately, there were a couple holes in the
pool cover and the water is filthy, so it's going to take some time to
get the pool swimmable as it is and I'm anxious to get it filled so I
can move on to filtering, etc.
