Just had an 18x36 IG liner pool installed last week. It is salt water chlorinated and uses DE filtration (Hayward). We had a very bad storm here this evening.. tornado watches in Pennsylvania! Of course we are in the middle of a massive landscape project- dirt all around outside of concrete waiting for plant install. We had the solar cover on when the storm started and we removed the cover which got a lot of the dirt that was sitting on top of the cover in the pool. However, I do think the pool was probably dirty before removing the cover. We had a pretty bad storm and lots of leaves and twigs went into pool as well. At any rate, the pool now is very dirty but more disconcerting, it is murky. I've been reading to vacuum to waste which we will do tomorrow once everything settles more. Once we do that- what else do we do? When do we turn filter back on? Do we keep vacuuming to waste? We have never owned a pool and have very basic knowledge of things. And how long should we expect this murkiness to continue. Any step by step instructions would be very helpful!
Thanks in advance for your help!
