    opening pools

    I have maintained my pool for 9 years and never closed mine.. so I'm helping some people open there pools..Most of these pools are green nasty swamps, the likes of which I have never seen before.. what's the best procedure (way) to follow to obtain clear water for these people.. Their Pumps will already be up and running..
    thank you

    Welcome to TFP, the best way is to test with a great test kit and use SLAM, check out the SLAM link in my signature below..
    Pool: Intex 16x32 15000 gal, 2 speed 340042, Pentair CC320 Filter, CircuPool SJ45 Salt System, Intermatic PE653RC; Hot Tub: 650 Gal SWG Megachlor

    SLAM

    Pool School - SLAM - Shock Level And Maintain

    But I will warn you, some people will be very very resistant to pouring gallons of bleach in a pool. I tried to help my neighbor with his algae, but I absolutely cannot convince him that Clorox and chlorine are the same chemical. He is still struggling. I did all I could.
