Howdy folks , long time reader, first time poster.
We recently had about 3 inches of rain dumped on us in about an hour and my beautiful, clean and chemical balanced pool was hit with flood water from the surrounding ground. All that work down the drain.
I have a in ground roman style pool that holds about 28,000 gallons.
I was able to pump off (using the backwash cycle of my sand filter) about 2000 gallons to bring the water from the rim back to the middle of the skimmers. The water is now however brown and I am not sure what to do to fix this.
I am now running the sand filter and back washing that every 60 minutes or so to prevent mud (muddy water) forming layers inside the filter. I will dump 2 or 3 gallons of liquid chlorine in it before bedtime and I do have a few bottles of clarifier that I can use but I need someone to tell me if this is the right thing or not.
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
