I bought a foreclosed house that had a neglected in ground pool for at least 2 seasons.
What we have done so far:
Removed 3 wheel barrel full of leaf, frogs, etc... from the bottom of the pool.
2 days ago we got the pump and filter going.
Added 14 ounces of dichlor that we already had and one pound of cya
Over the course of 3 days have added 6 gallons of 12.5% bleach
It only takes 15-30 minutes for the psi on the filter to increase by 8, so we are doing tons of backwashing. Also I am not able to keep the filter going over night, since it builds up to much. The color of the pool has changed dramatically and a ton less leafs are showing up.
Still can't see into the pool but when pulling a sample it looks clear instead of green.
FC 20 Had this up to 26 yesterday and it dropped to 16 in 14 hours.
How long before will it take for the filter to last 8 hours? Changing it every 15-30 minutes cleaning the baskets, catching leafs and scrubbing the pool is a full time job Thanks for any help.
