Bought a new house with an above ground 24' diameter pool. The previous owners had no problems with it and used it every summer. We filled it, connected the pump and sand filter. There was tons of dirt on the bottom of the pool but the water was relatively clear. We tried vaccuming the pool (on Filter setting) and a ton of dirty water was being spit back into the pool from the filter. Turned it off and let the water sit overnight. Thismorning it is still so green and dirty that you can't see the bottom! What is wrong?
My husband replaced the gasket yesterday as well, due to advice from some pool store people.
I am so excited about having a pool, and I really thought this was going to be fairly simple, but now we're both so frustrated.
