It rained very hard in a short amount of time here in NJ last night....I just had landscaping done with black mulch around pool beds. My pool was clean and clear and now black/darkish. I noticed dirt running with water directly into pool. I didn't know what to do but when I tested the water, I had .5 FC (target was 10). PH of 7.5
I thought maybe it was algae at first so I poured 8 gallons of 10% chlorine into water. Pump has been running and PSI is now about 21 from 18.
Should the pump be running and do I have to drain pool to get dirt out?
I'm new to pools but have been using TFPC for the last three months and it is working out great!
Thank you for any help...I'd like not to have to call a pool company.
