I am just curious for future years if it would be wiser to drain halfway a murky, green pool at start up than to try to clean up the water that is in there? It takes so long to clean a frog pond and I still wonder even for this year if it would clear any quicker if I drain it halfway now. I have been SLAMing for over a week and seeing some improvement but it is far from clearing. Can not see the shallow end yet even though it is a sea green/bluish color now. Also, we have a sand filter which apparently is the slowest to clean up. Would there be economic sense to change to a DE or cartridge filter system? Or do I just keep planning for 3-4 weeks of clean up in the spring?
Thanks for any opinions and/or advice on this.
