Ok I have an above ground pool that we had pretty much given up on at the end of last year. Reading through these forums I have decided to give it another go and see if I can get chlorine to work. I have drain the pool about 4/5's down (11k gal) clean out as much or the leaves and pine needles as I can (no cover over the winter). I'm now working on refilling the pool from the hose.
My question is should I change out the sand in the filter now while the water levels are down (an easier task) or use the filter as is for the conversion then change out the sand? I think the sand was last changed the season before last.
