Just pulled the cover off the pool this am. It is just green with and nasty. I received my TFP-100 and got it out to give it all a try.
Right now the results are:
In all fairness the water temp is 50 degrees. So while I head out and buy some bleach and such I have the water sample warming up to 70 plus. I don't know how much difference that will make but I'll find out.
Next step is to get the filters and pump going. I have a caretaker system. As near as I can tell the pool guy who closed it unly pulled and plugged the 3 shallow heads. I have 5 ports. I can see 2 of them so not sure how to deal with the 3rd one with the water so murky.
I have pulled the filter cartridges and cleaned them. We had a alge bloom last year toward the end of the season> the pool guy cleared it up but then when we shut things down never cleaned the filter.
No more pool guy.
Thanks for any advice you all might have.
