bought a house last summer with a 13000 gl inground pool. kept it up until the winter and then just forgot about it. well now it has a ton of leaves (i'm assuming) since the water is just green and cant see all the way to the bottom. :arrow: i want to get it clean economically, now where do I start :?:

If you are convinced there is debris in the bottom start by scooping the bottom blind. Do it twice and you should get most of the large stuff.

Then give it a huge chlorine shock and run the plant for 24 hours. I suggest about 20 ppm should be sufficient to start.

When the water is clear enough you can see the debris on the bottom you didn't get, scoop them out. Then shock again to about 10 ppm.

Then take your water to a shop or balance it however you do that.
