Im not only new to a having a pool, but new to a forum as well, so please excuse me if Im asking things in the wrong section or doing something incorrect. I will try my best!
I have an above ground vinyl pool, with a sand filter its approx 3m x 53 x 1.5depth, approx 22,000litres I think (sorry not to sure on gallons)
I desperately need HELP, I have moved into a home and the pool has not had anything done for it for 12mths or more, it was YUK, green as grass, I went to a pool shop who sold me a bunch of little size chemicals to put in it, and a little packet of shock powder, didn't do much at all, still green, another pool shop told me I didn't put enough chlorine in, so I put 20lts of liquid chlorine in, he adviced me to shock it big time to get the alge out, and scrub, it is starting to get clearer but my biggest problem is it has BILLIONS AND BILLIONS of swimming bugs, all sorts Ive looked up some and I think they are backswimmers and boatmen, how do I kill these critters fast, appranently chlorine won't kill them, there is too many to try and catch. My kids sooo want to use the pool. Please has anyone any advice on how to kill these animals ASAP.
