    Filter odor....

    Just filled pool after liner change out and started the filter up. I didnt drain the filter this winter and right now i am getting a smell from the water in the filter. Have not run any tests yet ( will do in the morning) but will this smell go away once bleach gets running through the filter?
    Don't have a pool right now. Just sharing what I have learned over the years!

    The water that sits in the lines over the winter in my pool is rank. Get it on your hands and you can still smell it after a shower. Chlorine cleans it up fine.
