I just bought a foreclosure with an in ground pool and after taking the cover off the water is black in the deep end but it turns yellow towards the steps. U
I have been blindly scooping leaves off the bottom, but I'm concerned with wether I can save this water or if I need to pump it out and start over? I hate to waste all that water because the pool is full, but I don't want to waste money on chemicals if it won't work. I'm not sure the exact gallons but I'm guessing around 20,000? It has a Hayward pro series sand filter and working pentair pump moter. Hopefully I can attach pics below.
