Hello helpful people.
My family and I moved this winter and there is an above ground pool on the property. I have no prior experience with pools but have kept aquariums for many years, so hopefully I won't be a total bonehead on water chemistry.
The pool was not used at all last year while the house was on the market, but was covered with a tarp. It rotted. Everything is green.
I've uncovered it and am going to get a net to start scooping leaves.
There is a 1 1/2 hp Optiflow pump and a Sparco sand filter.
Where do I go from here? Do I get a test kit and try to clean up the water that is in the pool? Do I drain it and start over? I have well and city water available.
