    preventive measures


    I am having the outside of my house re-painted and they company is pressure washing everything - walls, roof, POOL SCREEN , POOL DECK etc. So I am going to get lots of crp going into the pool. In the corners of my deck, I think there is black algae , so that could run in too. Should I dump an bunch of bleach in beforehand? thx

    Re: preventive measures

    I would.

    I might go even further depending on the size of the pool. If you can find some plastic big enough, spread it over the pool and use duct tape to stick it to the deck so no overspray or runoff gets in the water.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
