I need help opening my pool this year. I did not cover it during the winter and it is green and I am sure it has leaves and what every in the bottom. In the past I have started opening by adding clorine and trying to get the debrie out of the bottom with a leaf net. If I understand what I have read here the clorine will do no good unless I get the trash out of the bottom first. Also I know you want test figures but the only test kit I have is one that I got at walmart last year It is the HTH like the one in pool school. Can I test the water when it is green with algae and get acurate results. I am sure I will many more questions but these are the first two.
Haven't figured out the signature yet but I have a 26500 gal vinyl pool,1hp hayward pump,sand filter.
I'll try to take some pictures after work to night and post.
