I am new to this forum but I am glad to have stumbled across it. Lots of great info.
I have a 27' round 48" deep above ground pool. Currently using Soft Swim but will be converting to chlorine in the spring. I woke up yesterday to find my crystal clear pool is now cloudy and I can not see the bottom. I suspect something to do with all the rain and wind the last few days.
As I mentioned above i have decided to convert to chlorine since chemicals have cost me quite a bit this year. This is the first year I have owned a pool. Couple of questions for you.
I need to drain my pool and add some sand under the liner. There are severe dips in the the liner where either the ground has settled or the sand has washed out. I did the food color thing in the dips to make sure it was not a hole in the liner.
1) should I drain and fix before I close for the winter or wait to do it in the spring.
2) If I wait till spring should I do the conversion then
3) If I wait till spring would it be ok to close even with the water cloudy or should I sink more money into Softswim to get the chemicals right.
Thank you for any responses.
