Hello all, the hubby and I have been reading daily the posts on here and decided to join, because we are sure gonna need help! We just purchased home and this algae pool. Not sure when it was ever used but it still holds what MAY be water. The pump and filter works after a few minor repairs and a spider gasket. We have removed at least 4 wheelbarrow loads of goop and are running pump several hours per day while here working on the house. Ordering test kit tonight. What do we do while we wait for kit? Do we start adding bleach as we have no idea on numbers til kit arrives?
