My name is George. This is my first post. I have my first pool, so I am a newbie at all aspects of pool ownership. The pool is a plaster 32k gallon in ground with a 1hp older pump. A medium-size Pentair ED filter and a gas heater make up the rest of the filtration/heating system.
I am in the process of removing the algae in the pool. I read much informative post in this forum regarding the removal of the algae. At this time, there are lots of leaves at the bottom of the pool. The color of the water is so green that you cannot see the bottom of the 10 feet deep end.
It took about 2 months of neglect along with several days of heavy rains and very strong winds that left a lot of tree debris to get the water to its current state.
I am thinking very strongly to just drain all the water and make some scratch repairs to the bottom of the pool along with removing calcium that is currently present on the walls of the pool. Before I drain the pool, I wanted to get some feedback regarding this procedure and the cost of this project.
I am very handy in general construction but taking on this pool project is something NEW to me.
I welcome any input from any one regarding the pros and cons of draining or partial draining of the pool.
The following are results from my local pool dealer water test.
CYA = 100
FAC = 0
TAC = 0
TBS = 1100
