Hi my husband and I bought a foreclosed house last August and it has and uncovered 24 ft above ground pool. The pool has no pump or filter (both were jacked before we bought the house) and it does have a blue cover that kinda looks like bubble wrap -- not sure if its a winter cover or solar cover??? Anyways, we want to get this pool up and running asap but are completely unsure of where to start. The liner has two 12 - 14 in slices in it which we patched up witha kit. it has a bout 2 ft of (nasty brown leafy) water. We went to Litehouse pools and they werent too much help. We would like some advice on cost cutting tips and what chemicals to use without someone trying to "make a sale". We have no idea what shocking your pool and putting in bleach and algae blockers are...and do not know where to get the most cost effective supplies!! Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
