Good Morning TFP,
I have a mesh safety cover that I notice has some bright green algae on it. The cover has been laying on the surface of the water much of the winter season. I use a company to close my pool - as I am not brave enough yet to attempt it on my own. Their requirement for closing is that the water level be mid-skimmer. I have drained some water off during the winter months but it still dips down onto the water. ( The previous owner had purchased this cover and did not allow for the fountain along one side of the pool, so three of the straps on that side are not attached to anything)
This year, I have chosen to open my pool myself (which will mean another thread of its own, as I may need some help with that :roll eyes: )
My question is, what can I do to clean the mesh cover? Is there anything that I can do BEFORE removing the cover to cut down on the algae? And once it IS removed how do I get that off? As it stands, my water IN the pool still looks great - I can see the main drain clearly at the bottom of my 9 foot deep end. I plan on opening 4/15 so that I have that night and the next three days to dedicate to getting it balanced.
Any and all help would be appreciated!!
