Just got my liner in yesterday. return jets & skimmer have been trimmed and refitted, filling to water line now.
The sand filter site glass has green water in it. It was clear 2 months ago when I first looked at this home
I'm assuming the water inside the filter is green as well now (has not run since the old liner failed in june this year)
I would prefer not to have any of that enter my fresh fill.
Once I reach the pool fill line at the skimmer, can I just prime the pump basket with a bucket of water to make sure it's full, close it up, then rotate
to backwash and switch it on? (do that first to clear all the gunk out before running it on filter?)
