Sometime during the end of last year, my pump stopped turning. I had 100 other things going on with everything in life, and put it off to the side. Here we are come spring, my water is black, and it's FULL of mosquitoes and water boatmen (and who knows what else). Undecided if I'm going to drain/clean/refill, or if I should try to treat what I have. I can have it refilled by hose in about one day if I decide to drain it.
First thing is to bring my pump back to the pool store and see if they will exchange it; it only lasted maybe 3 months.
