I have been using bbb for the last few years. This year I never got around to covering my pool 24 round 4 foot deep. I did drain everything. I fill it all back up and started the pump and filter a week and a few days ago. I have killed all the algae but the water is still very cloudy. I know there are leaves in the middle I can see the dark ring. Should I try to clean the leaves out before I do anything else? Should I just net them out? because I can't see the bottom.
This is the third summer on the sand filter 300 or 350lb can't remember. Does the sand need replaced or cleaned? It just seems like it's not filtering the water.
I checked the water this morning with the Taylor test kit
FC 13. Held over night.
Ph. 7.4 also tested at work with a ph probe and it showed 7.6
Ta 80 tested at work shows 88
