I’m in the same boat. Concrete in ground pool was covered last fall with a mesh type cover that kept bigger material out like leaves, sticks, etc. It should be noted that the cover sagged into the water and a considerable amount of leaves collected in it over the winter and this material has since been cleared out already. The water is dark green, the walls are covered with a green filmy substance (possibly algae?) and there is dark green suspended matter floating freely in the water that can be collected by dipping the hand skimmer into the water and scooping it out.
Scooping the suspended particulate out with the hand skimmer would be a tedious pains taking procedure that would take days as you only get a handful of debris per scoop. What would be our best approach from here? Should we try to deal with what is currently in the water now or would it be easier and less hassle just to drain it and fill with new water?
