Ok I have a 14' x 4' Intex Metal Frame Pool and I use a SALTWATER generator. I live in NY and left it up for the entire winter, its currently too cold to actually go swimming for another month. When I took the cover off the pool was green.
The pool is half full below the return lines.
My options are drain it, scrub the walls with a pool brush and bleach vacuum it and refill entirely.
SLAMing the pool. I guess I have to fill the pool so the shock can be distributed with the pump. I'm a little confused, is it basically adding shock until the FC level is up and CC level is .5 or less and brushing the walls and vacuuming daily. That will make the pool clear again? Just shocking it will get rid of the algea once proper PH and chlorine are reached?
Which option seems better? And I have about another month until we actually use the pool. I shouldn't wait, right? Even though I'm not using it for another month. I should start getting the pool ready for use even if I don't go in it for another month?
