I am opening a 20X40 concrete pool that has been closed for several years, I have many many questions...I am told that 2 or 3 years ago they tried to kill the algae and were unable, so they just closed it back up.
I emptied the pool, pressure & acid washed it. I need to paint it, should I assume that it is the rubberized paint? Can I paint epoxy over it if it is?
Next, it was converted to salt water a few years ago; can I test the cell to see if it still works before I fill the pool? If it doesn't I'll just go with chlorine. Fortunately we have had an early spring in Indiana, so I have an early start, but I am a stopping point and I need some advice.
