I recently moved into a house with a roughly 16,500gal pool. The pump broke right before I moved in and for almost 3 weeks now it has been sitting and turned totally green.
I just installed a Hayward Northstar 1HP pump, the filter is designed for 100sqft (I believe and will double check when I get home.
Pool has a small 4 jet Jacuzzi, and I think 3 or 4 return jets into main pool. I know there is at least 3 but can't see any others bc the pool is so green.
So far I have just dumped 3 gal or chlorine and a small pack shock granules into the pool along with 13 ounces of algaecide. I plan to get water tested today.
I have noticed that there seems to be a lot of air bubbles intermittently in the return lines, while the pump is on. I shut the valve to the Jacuzzi portion and the bubbles start along with water level dropping in pump skimmer basket to around 3/4's full. When I open the Jacuzzi drain line the bubbles stop but the Jacuzzi also starts draining as well.
I'm lost and just looking for any general direction to look for bubble solution as well as a fast track to getting the pool blue again.
