Background: I just moved into a home with an in-ground pool that hasn't been operational since the summer of 2017. I have never owned a pool, but I am attempting to get it to where we can swim. When I first began attempting to get it corrected, there were massive tadpoles and frogs living in the pool. It honestly resemebled a swamp.
I have already replaced the pump and now the filter and pump are functional. However, the water remains green with a slight tint of blue. I have the levels balanced currently; however, it is still green.
When I do vaccum, it stirs up the bottom of the pool and again turns to an ugly color until it settles again.
Any tips to getting the water a healthy looking color? My children are desperate and so is my wife to swim in this pool.
To be honest, having this pool operational to beat the heat and to escape the boredom from the covid-19 town lockdown would be much appreciated.
