    Haven't vacuumed in week will pool be ok?

    We had a bad bad storm last week. We have no trees but pool was full of leaves! I scooped out leaves..did a quick vac but still missed a lot. Been busy. Been keeping fc up and filter running, brushing but i haven't had time to really vacuum well and i was going to yesterday but there was no point when they were bailing hay near us on windy day. Will pool be ok if I don't vacuum until this weekend? Mainly grass and dirt thats blown in

    All that debris is consuming your FC, which is trying to break it down. It could also stain (organic) your pool floor if you leave it go.

    I would at least brush a bit to move it around. And keep your FC above target for your CYA,FC/CYA Chart

    If you're sick, don't worry about it. I haven't swept mine in over a week either.

    Shhhhhhh... don't tell these pool snobs I said that!

    lol i try hard to keep up with it but lately its one thing after another. I do get out there and test and add chlorine. I have to get in mine and vacuum with goggles or i miss the majority of it.
