    Back from the dead

    Last year was the first year I ever owned a pool. 16' above ground Intex. Made the mistake of letting it go in September of last year, and there it sat, full of water, for 9 months (hey, I'm a professional procrastinator).

    After a few subtle hints from the lady, I had to take action.

    Thanks! I honestly thought the thing was done for. Actually amazed it came clean as easy as it did. I just hope I don't grow a 3rd eye from cleaning the experimental funk left in the bottom of the pool.
