    Pool so far

    Hey guys just wanted to check in with everyone I am waiting on my pool test kit now should here sometime this week. I have worked every day in this blasted pool lol. My kids better swim in this thing or I might have to kill them It is looking so much better then it has and I can actually see the bottom "somewhat" I can see if there is a clump of leaves or my net when I bring it all the way down. I haven't vacuumed yet because of the stupid gumballs that are in the pool and it will stop up the hose. So every day I have gone out with my net and very meticulously scooped up the debris off of the bottom going on about 4 weeks of doing this. Will this madness ever end? Lol I wish I had before pictures but just imagine it being black

    Just wait until you record your first set of test numbers with your own test kit once it arrives. You'll be amazed.

    While you are waiting, can you take out that ladder and scrub it really well with some bleach solution?
