Pool won't refill after draining it

Postby jjspool » Thu 24 May, 2007 12:17

Our gunite pool is 12 years old. We just finished draining it for the first time and did an acid wash to clean it. However, now that we are trying to refill our pool, the water level won't rise past 1/3 full.

We replaced the main drain pressure relief valve when the water was out, and it doesn't appear that there is anything stuck in the valve that is holding it open. Any suggestions as to what else could be wrong, and what we should do next ?

Can you plug off bottom drain to see if it has leak?
