The pond

We opened our pool a week earlier than we usually do so it could be ready for birthdays. In years past we could swim in the pool the same day we opened it. Not this year. Looks like our pool guy didn't do his job very well. He obviously didn't put in enough chemicals last year when closing and we ended up doing all the work ourselves this year.

 

Notice the dead earthworms floating on the water. Millions upon millions of these did I remove from all three filters.
 

Two weeks later we let the kids swim, but we still can't see through the water. Very cloudy.
 

To be continued.

That is horrible!! I'm surprised that you didn't have to drain it to get it cleaned out. I would fire you pool guy.
