How do I open my pool?

Postby Pool Girl » Sat 03 Jun, 2006 18:24

:roll: Hi I need help we have had our inground pool since last year. We had it professionally closed for the winter. Spring came around and called the guy to come open the pool and fix the VerAFlow valve that cracked during the winter. We have called several times and he doesn't return the calls so my husband and I took the cover almost all the way off do I shock first or try vaccuming I really don't know where to start.
Thanks

Don't vacuum until the pool is almost clean. The vacuum is just to maintain and not to do the heavy work. Try to filter it, put your chemicals in to get the Ph and Chlorine levels right and when the pool in clear, vacuum the crud off the bottom. It will take some time. Filter as much as posible.

if there is like a 'dust' on the bottom of the pool, or any algae, vac it to waste, as it will just pass through the filter and you wll notice clouds of the dust around the reurns. but as the previous user said, filtering and backwashing is the way , keeping chlorine levels a little higher than what you would be used to until it clears
