    Are you designing a pool, or just aiming what's already there?

    If you're designing - check the prevailing winds. Every afternoon I get a breeze that blows everything past the skimmer and the last return, and it just sits there.

    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!
