Well it depends what your levels are. You can SLAM it to get it back under control. Look in my siggy for the SLAM link.

I see no reason to drain anything. Get a STRONG leafnet and get out everything you can. then, SLAM the pool.

That was the conclusion I decided too. Waiting on a Hayward Skimmer, then will get it filled and pumps going. Before test.

Cant run pump much when at work skimmer basket gets full fast. Dont have that much time to vacuum. Brush daily hopefully it will be clear shortly. Really love this way of life.

24'fc
Ph 9
Ta 100
Ch 300
Cya 15

Added 5.5 lbs Cya
Added 45 oz muriatic acid

Good work.

If you catch your FC below 10 you might want to check pH. Starting high, and with 100 TA it may rise up pretty quickly again.
