Hello, first post, and new to owning a pool, so please be easy on me.lol
I recently purchased a house, and attached is an in ground pool. It is above ground level, it looks like they made a hill, and put the pool in the hill. It's rectangular, and it's been abandoned for the past 5 years. Well, not technically abandoned, the previous owner has been keeping fish in it. The pool itself does not leak, but the skimmer does.
I would like to restore it to being a swimming pool instead of a pond. It is VERY green, can't see the bottom, and I know there's leaves in the bottom.
Aside from the skimmer, all the rest of the hardware appears to be in working condition. It is a saltwater setup.
As a new pool owner, I'm hoping I can get my without refinishing the inside of the pool, does anyone have any sort of plan that I could follow to get this thing running again?
I realise I'm gonna have to shock it, but I have no idea how lol
