    Where to start?? WWYD?

    Ok, My pool has not been touched in several months, looks like the black lagoon, and I think there are creatures!
    My chemical levels are all pretty much 0, and I am debating on whether to start the pump/filter with a zillion gallons of bleach, OR drain it and start over.
    It does have leaves, sticks, and maybe branches in it, we had a storm that blew the cover off, and several large oak trees in the yard so I can just imagine. So , Opinions? drain and start over, or run the filter and see what I have to work with? WWYD?

    I can blame this all on the flu, chicken pox, and a much needed vacation.
    Hurricane Rita did not kill me, but she killed my pool!

    Cleaning up the pool shouldn't be too bad. Draining is likely to be more difficult and definitely has more risks. Check out this thread, it has lots of directions on how to proceed.
