I just opened my pool after 3 years of it being closed, opened it and connected all filter and pump. My plan was to not run any of the equipment until after I had the pool power vac-ed, I just made the appointment with my pool guy and he ask me if I could see the bottom of the pool at the deep end which I can't. He than said that I need to shock the pool and run my filter for at least 2 days before power vac-ing, is this the correct way to do this ?
My thinking is while would I want to mix around all the stuff laying at the bottom of my pool into the water and have my filter start clearing the water, that is the reason I am power vac-ing so that I can save the wear and tear on my filter and have the power vac I am paying for do the heavy lifting ?
Thank you for your options
