My wife and I are purchasing a home with a 38,000 gallon in-ground vinyl liner pool. I've spent a good portion of this evening reading the "pool school" topics, but I need a little help.
The pool needs a new pump & filter. After reading through the pool school threads, i'm thinking cartridge filter is the route I'd like to go. Can anyone help recommend a brand or size pump and filter I would need for a pool this size?
It sounds like this pool has not been used for a few years. I pulled the cover off to take a look. It's not completely green, but it's got crud all in it and even some small tadpols. The good news is that the pool is relatively full, about a foot or two away from being full, likely due to evaporation over the past few years. To me, that means it likely doesn't have any rips or tears in the liner. Being that the water has sat for a couple of years, should I drain all the water and start from scratch, or should I just clean out at much leaves/tadpoles as I can with the net and start with the water that's in there?
Any help and advice is appreciated!
