After finally getting my pump to go, I woke up this morning and noticed a lot of "white patches" floating on the surface of the pool. The water has been milky for several days (noob problems... ) but now I'm shooting the chlorine to it and trying to get it back to crystal clear.
I'm guessing that the white stuff floating around may be dead algae? It was still pretty dark out when I had my morning coffee on the patio, but I think it looked a little foamy. My wife is off work today and I'll get her to skim it off.
In the meantime, I'm planning on backwashing the filter this evening, and twice tomorrow and Sunday. Also, should have internet at home by tonight, so I'll shoot some numbers at you as well.
