Where do I begin!!??? We just bought this house less then a year ago. It was a "fixer upper" but the home inspector said the pool was "not in not bad shape"...�� he said it just had "cosmetic issues". First time to own a pool. So far the kids have loved it. The pool is 20 years old. It needs to be resurfaced and has settled quite a bit on one end. So much so that we had to disable one of the skimmers since the water does not reach it to flow into it. Everything we've done with the pool so far as far as care, has been from watching you tube videos. My husband is very handy around the house. ��
When we got back from a weekend away and I think our pump might have gone out cause the pool is completely green with algae and there is not water being pulled out when I turn the pump on. When I turn on the pump it makes a weird noise. We have no trees or shade at all. It has been over 100 degrees everyday so it's gotten bad fast. We called a pool guy who said he could put a new pump in on Friday at the earliest, for about $600 unless my husband wanted to try to do it himself.
i have no idea if that's even a good idea for my husband to attempt that, even if he is a handyman. And our car is in the shop and is going to cost $500 so we really don't have the money for this right now but it doesn't look like we have a choice.
Not it sure what to do to help it not turn solid green with algae till it can get fixed.
Any my advice at all would be so wonderful.
