I just moved into a house on feb. 2 and my pool turned green a week and a half later

I just moved and didnt have the money so i left it so its been green for two weeks now but it's thick and green i dont know what to do i'm taking a sample to leslies to day but reading all your Q and A's it sounds like i should just drain the pool and start over.

After such a short period, it will not be necessary to drain the pool. Adjust the pH to around 7.2 and then shock the water with chlorine.

A clarifier or flocculant may help speed things up.

Read some of the posts on these forums for more useful advice. Try this thread or this one for starters.
