    Ok, so the pool is now drained? If it is empty you need to go ahead and put pavers under each of the pools legs and level the pool again. Dig down until solid ground to level the legs. Once it is level you can refill the pool and we will help you get the water balanced and show you how to keep it algae free.

    The CYA (stabilizer) in the bags of shock are why your pool eventually went green. Read Pool School to learn why and how to prevent it next time and save money at the same time!
