My lawn guys came on Thursday and apparently my grass is loving all this heat.
There is copious amounts of grass in my pool. I have emptied the pump basket 2-3 times a day and the skimmer twice a day. The main drain keeps clogging and that has to be cleared a couple of times a day as well. I have vacuumed and brushed daily since Thursday and I still see grass floating in the pool. The kids just said the main drain is covered again. The last two mornings I have had to empty the pool blaster twice during vacuuming to empty it. Of course all my neighbors are mowing today and there is a nice breeze blowing more grass my way. I keep sweeping around the pool but it keeps blowing back. I feel like it is a losing battle.
I have been burning through chlorine like I own a chlorine factory. Last night I brought it up to 11 and this morning it was down to 5.5. I added more bringing it back to 11 and two hours later it was down to 8.5 brought it back up to 11 and I just tested again it is down to 5.
The water is clear I can see the screw heads from the diving board on the main drain. Lots of sparkle, no sign of algae. I stopped today and picked up 15 gallons of bleach to do a slam. But do I really need a full slam?
Test results from this morning
