    Shower pouf prefilter...

    Hi all, thought I'd share with you a little something I came up with when I was battleing with springtime tree blooming. My neighbor has a big Japanese maple right next to my pool and when it buds new foliage it produces a little stem that the wind would blow right in but worse than that I have huge live oaks that produce a brush like stem, thousands of them... My skimmer would get clogged in just a few hours. Plus a lot of the pieces would pass through the skimmer and into the send filter....anyways, I went to Wally World and tried to figure out something I could use. I spotted the shower poufs and a big smile came across my face. Sure enough it fits perfectly in the basket, catches the little stuff and allows water to pass through even when heavy with the debris. Of course I still had to empty it often but my pump didn't break suction. You can take it out and shake/spray it off and replace it when necessary (at $1-$2 ). Hope this helps some folks

    LOL, ...men a shower pouf is that bundle of netting tied up with a string to hang it up... They're sold on the isle with soap and body wash. Cost is about $1 to $2... I am loving mine as a prefilter

    I just use a queen-sized knee-high nylon.



    Many others have discovered hairnets. About 7 apiece in a box of 100.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    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!
