Can I change a pool light myself?

How do I treat my green pool?
To begin treating your green pool we would first suggest a water sample for analysis. With the sample water we will be able to determine which chemical are or are not present. Normally we treat with an algaecide and shock or liquid chlorine.
How long do I run the pump each day? Why?
Good rule of thumb is one hour for every 10 degrees of heat (i.e. 80 degrees run pump 8 hours) This allows the pool water to filter as needed with our warm temperatures.
How much DE do I add to my DE filter?
One scoop (we do have de scoops that measure) for every 5 square feet of filter area (i.e. 48 sq. ft. filter requires 9 scoops of DE)
How much water do I need for a water test?
About 8 ounces is adequate.
How often do I have to clean the cartridges in my cartridge filter?
Clean your cartridges with a 10 lb pressure rise on the tank, normally ever 6-8 weeks. Keeping a good cleaning schedule as well as thoroughly cleaning will increase the life of your cartridges.
