    Cover blew off during hurricane

    Our cover blew off during Sandy and now we have a green pool. During the storm we had to hook up a drainage hose so the excess water would drain out...it rained for like 5 days straight here in Norfolk...so we still just have water below the skimmer. All the other equipment is put away nicely and ready for renters next April. What can we do to rid the pool of the green before we put the cover back on WITHOUT filling and reconnecting all the equipment? Maybe throw in some bleach and stir?? Suggestions?? I can almost guarantee you that all of our closing chemicals are gone with the amount of water that got into the pool and drained back out during the storm.

    yeah, just don't go crazy with the amount you put it. Your winter cover alone (assuming it's somewhat new) will help prevent algae from growing by blocking the sunlight. Just mix some up in a bucket and broadcast it around the pool

    Yep. It's only seen 1 season. So maybe a half gallon?
