My pool seems to have gotten away from me and I am leaving for a month with a very green swamp. I read Jason's
very thorough and informative post on swamps vs. oasis. I choose the oasis, I just can't fix it right now. Anyway,
my question is this: Do I need to rely on the filter to clear out the dead algae, or can I use a manual vacuum
cleaner straight out of the pool and not mess with my filter. I don't currently own a manual vacuum, but if
that could save some work on the filter, I would consider getting one. Thanks again for having this forum.
