I am adding some picutes of my water to show how it looks right after removing the safety cover. It looks a lot better than it did when the pool company opened it last year when I was buying the house (I required they open it so I could see it before buying). Is this about normal, or should it open even clearer? I did get a lot of worms in the water over winter.
I also drained the spa completely for winter, but it was completely full at opening, so I either have a cover leak or it back fed from somewhere (I am going with cover leak). I hope there was not freeze issues. I didnt have water at the 3 way valve on the return to the spa 2 monts ago, but there was water there yesterday.
Note how far I drained the pool. I estimate my total volume at 17K gallons, and figure I dumped about 5-6k to lower below the returns. I did not go below the light, as there wouldnt have been much left at that point. Is it normal to have to dump so much water for closing?
