I am ready to turn my sister swamp into a blue lagoon but its gonna take some work.It got away from her last summer so she just let it go.She didnt even cover it at end of year,I bought another pump and filter the other day, becuase her old one was screaming.I posted earlier this weekend all about it.
So heres what I've done so far,Ive hooked up new pump and filter to get it ready.Its about 8 inches low on water,and I didnt want to add water before I new what the cya level was,just in case i had to drain water.So I went to the local pool store to have the water tested (because I dont have good test kit,but I'm ordering one this weekend).Here we're the results....
FC = 0.0
Of course she tried selling me a bunch chemicals ,which I didnt buy.And I went to Walmart and bought 10 bottles of bleach.I left there and went to Home Depot and bought muratic acid and sand for new filter,to start fresh with.
When I got home I filled filter with sand,and started filling pool with water.The pool lady told me not to worry about the CYA till I get the water up to lvl and get pump running.And get the ph,ta, where they need to be than add chlorine.
I also tooks pics before I started,just dont know how to upload them.
