I'm in the process of SLAMing my 9500 gal-ish Intex metal frame pool.
Long story short, I had some major surgery this summer and the backup helpers didn't keep as close a watch on things and then it rained for probably a week straight, so algae got a little crazy!
Water is finally blue again instead of army green, but very cloudy, so the SLAM is marching on. When I brush there's lots of debris that comes up from the bottom that I can't see (leaves, etc). I have a hose-attached vacuum but it doesn't have a long handle and I'm not getting in there with it!! How do I get that junk out? Should I stop the pump so it will settle to the bottom and I can scoop it out? I attached a skimmer that has done a GREAT job of clearing the surface but all the past neglect means the bottom still has lots of stuff. (I have a great test kit and am using pool math btw)
