My husband has always taken care of our pool, but he's decided a 14 year younger woman is much better than a family - sooooo, I'm in dire need of help! first of all he neglected to tell me that the SWG is no longer working. Found that out after a few days & a green pool. I' pretty sure my filter needs a good cleaning, never been done & it's 8 years old. We have a Triton filter. I've read the thread about the garden hose cleaning procedure but not sure how to get it open to do that. I'm a look at a picture kind of gal - any thoughts? Thanks in advance for your help.
