High nitrates...drain? tips/helps
We have a 35,000 gal concrete pool. We found out the nitrates are high, 58 after draining down a foot below the skimmers twice. The pool store I just brought the water sample to this time said the only way is to completely drain it.
He said there are plugs to take out as soon as we can get to them to make sure it balances the water table.
Is this something we can do or should we get someone to come do it?
How aggressive do we have to be in getting the bottom plugs out?
If water comes up after we take them out do we just leave that water in or try to pump that out as we are filling it up?
Has anyone drained it for this or other reasons?
Can I just use the waste on the filter pump or should we get a pump from home depot (that is all i found online when looking into this but I thought we could just turn the filter to waste and do it that way).
