Filter doesn't work at all. called company, but in the mean time. I'm on day three with no pump. I've tried everything, hooking up son's old Intec pump (doesn't fit), I've shocked twice and put in other chemicals after testing. the water went from clear with some trash in it that I cleaned out, to a light green, to a dark green to brown that I can't see the bottom!
The company is sending a new pump but 3-5 days.... There is already stuff on the side of the pool that I am trying to clean off but I'm just doing what I can reach from the outside. I don't dare get in that mess. However, when I clean it with the net. I barely get anything! just a few bugs, etc.
So, I desperately need advice! I'm a first time pool owner, considering going to the pool store and purchasing a sand filter.... which I've researched and kind of wanted anyway... just didn't want to put out the $$$ initially. BUT, is now the perfect time to jump in? I don't feel like I can afford to wait 5 days for a filter.... I live in the country and 45 min from pool store. it's Saturday and need to make a decision... I would really appreciated any advice!
