Hello I'm James from North Carolina. I just closed on my house yesterday. It was a foreclosure sale and I really couldn't inspect the pool until yesterday. I have 16*32 foot in-ground pool that haden't been opened in a year. Good news is that it was covered. I have never owned a pool or in maintained one. The plan for me is to use this site as log and to help me clean my pool. I have two weeks to have a clear pool.
removed the cover
brushed some of the pool until the brush fell into the pool
filled the pool until half of the skimmer was covered
Tried to start the pump with no success. The pump is humming and per youtube I think that it might be the capacitor.
I shocked the pool 6 bottles of chlorine. Yes I know the pump wasn't running. Yesterday I had a green pool today i have a cloudy blue pool.
I found a shop that had a used capacitor that they pulled from a pump. They let me have it for free! Today's goal is to get the pump running.
