Fix Green / Refill pool via Lake

Postby markbrick » Sat 30 Jul, 2016 11:20

Pool turned green this past week and couldn't get it back to normal. Rented a 3" pump and emptied 18500 gallon pool in an hour and refilled with lake water. Within 12 hours all was back to good. Sand filter and 8 gallons of bleach did the trick. Saw different posts of lake water being iffy. I'm sold.
