Thanks to everyone on TFP our last summer as newbies was a success. As it doesn't get too cold here we did not take down our intex 12x24 pool this year but just drained it down to about a foot over the winter. After evaporation over the winter we are down to about 8 inches in the bottom. There is some algae and debris in it. So I'm trying to figure out how to start up this year. The hoses to the pump are very high on the pool wall. My thought is we clean and vacuum as much debris as we can and then start filling. Then, not sure of next steps. We need to slam as we do have algae but we won't have any CYA at all because this is mostly a refill. So I'm not sure what to do first when it's filled. Thanks for any help. We will get this someday.
