    Hello all, I'm new to having a home pool..

    Should I drain my pool and start fresh? I went over the bottom and found atleast 100 roofing nails a pile of shingles and some metal flashing aprox. 4 ft long. Oh and a hammer. The pool has set idle for 1 and a half years and it's been shocked twice by a pool company.
