I have an 18x36 Vinyl pool constructed 2 years ago, 8 Foot Deep end, Aqualogic system + Aqualogic SWG, Sand Filter, 2HP 1 speed pump.
Pool is closed from October where we have below freezing winters and we open in April and swim in May. I had the pump running up until it was closed but I turned off the SWG, I should have kept it running as the water turned green prior to closing, the persona closingit put a lot og Algecide in it I believe as it brought the colour back slightly and looked better when I opened it but it has been a few days already and it went greener.
I've never opened a pool myself, I don't plan to do it entirely myself this year but I'll have someone that fixes some small leaks on the equipment pad and turning on the Pump until I have the know how to do it myself, need to watch some videos on it if any exist for that type of config.
After all the leaks are fixed and the pump is running, is there a guide I can read from that point to get the water right again, I also purchased a TFT-100 test kit and a Magentic Stirrer but I've never either.
The pool did have one of those black mesh covers on it, but for sure there is some dirt that has collected at the bottom. I remember at one point last year the pool company had me put something in the water that made the dirt settle to the bottom and form a more solid state but I Vaccumed on filter and not waste and the whole thing got cloudy again and it was difficult to get back again.
I hope there is a guide that detailed I can follow so I don't make any mistakes or don't pay for products not necessary that the pool store sells you.
Thanks for anything you can teach me!
