    Don't panic You must have a leaf rake or a net. Just slowly start scooping up the big stuff as much as possible. Then you can manually vaccum until you get the crud out. Just make sure your filter is staying clean during this process watch the pressure. Eventually you'll get it clean. When the rover comes it will be a bonus

    Get as much of the debris out as you can with whatever tools you have available. The leaf net is great for this sort of crummy job.

    Wouldn't hurt to test the water and start the adjustment process. You'll want some bleach in there to help fight the organics. Have you had a chance to explore Jason's Pool Calculator yet? It's a great tool to help you adjust and maintain the chemical balance of your water.
