My backyard was turned into a lake last night when we got a flash flood that dropped a TON of rain. The result was that the rain and storm water went INTO my pool. So what was a crystal clear pool yesterday now looks like a semi-clear lake with suspended sediment. I am at a loss as to the appropriate response. Should I circulate and just clean the filter daily or turn off the pump and let the sediment settle and brush it towards the drain and then turn the pump back on to suck it through the drain/filter?
I think I will be okay getting the chemicals back in line as I am sure they are all out of whack. I assume I will need to shock the pool once I get the sediment out.
Any advice as to what to do about the dirt/sediment or just in general is greatly appreciated.
