I just moved into a new home. The swimming pool has not been operated for about 2 months. I dumped quite a bit of bleach into it to get rid of the "green". I also purchased an automatic cleaner that hooks up to the skimmer intake. Here are my problems:
-Floor of pool is extremely dirty.
-PSI on tank is anywhere from 50-60. I did a couple of backflows on it until the water coming out is clear. It lowered it a little. I do not see a place where air is getting in/out. The basket at the pump when I start the pump has a good amount of water swishing around inside for a minute or so and then it starts to just flow through.
-The automatic cleaner will vibrate around 30-60 seconds and start cleaning, but then stops moving along the floor.
-Cannot tell for sure because the water was green, but it appeared that water coming out of the return is dirty.
This is my first pool and I want to get it winterized before the cold comes. I know that the guides here tell me to get the pool in good order before doing so however. Thank you for any help.
