Ok, I've suddenly become responsible (long awful story) for a green swamp. I was told by my dad that I need to shut off the power to the pool to backwash. Is this really correct? It seems strange to me somehow because I'm wondering how it will pump with no electricity?? Is my thinking off here? Could anyone please give me a heads up?
Just some details about pool. Sorry I don't have much. I've just started learning all this today.
Has a deep-end
Uses sand filter
My dad started bringing it back up about a week ago. It was uncovered and not tended all winter (like usual), so it's not black anymore but it's still emerald green. He's not a resource. I have to do this all on my own. I did manage to ask him about 3 questions (when to backwash, how to backwash, if we had chlorine) but that's it he's angry from the questions now, so I can't ask him anymore... so I'd really appreciate anything anyone can throw my way.
