just filled my pool a 24' round by 48-52" tall. not sure exactly. Pool was empty and clean.
The sand filter and pump hooked up to it had been sitting for over a year without being run. Not sure what brand/power etc.. they are.
most of the plumbing is underground. Pool has a center drain, and a skimmer. Was just filled today and cut the pump on.. out of the side came green smelly water for about 5 min( making my freshwater I just put in their a bit cloudier...) but after a few minutes it cleared up, but still didn't smell great at all. the sand filter has a measly 5-10 psi( saying 10 may be pushing it) but it is currently running for about an hour now. will be cutting off before its too late dark.
I have been reading as much as I can before I posted and already spent the $$ on a NEW TAYLOR K-2006 Complete Pool Test Kit. But it isn't here yet.
I did get the best I could find at the store for now.. and here is as follows.
now this is a cheap strip test and could not be very accurate. but I did test twice and this is what I came up with.
Now I am concerned about the sand filter and pump as I am completely in the dark about them.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
O and I would like to try the BBB method!!
