    Thanks and curse all of you!

    Many thanks are due! All of you have made the first two weeks of owning a pool so simple and easy! Our pool is crystal clear.


    And curse all of you! The pool is so clear when the kids get out I spot the tiniest leaf or smallest speck of dust that I missed when I vacuumed earlier! I told my husband we needed a little pool robot to vacuum. He looked at me like I was nuts and told me I was too obsessive about the floor of the pool. We only have a little oval ag pool, takes me 15 minutes to vacuum, but I always miss something!

    And thanks to BBB I can see it laughing at me from the bottom of the pool.

    No matter how long I vacuum or how long I walk around looking while the vac is hooked up, as soon as I unhook it and put it up, A piece of something will kamakazi the pool and there it sits, laughing at me like it owned the world.

    I feel your pain!

    I've been thinking abot getting a catfish cleaner to keep the stuff picked up without having to drag out the vac and hose.

    I just sit in the pool 24/7 waiting for that leaf or debris to enter and quickly dispose of it.

    Yep, sparklypoolitis strikes again.

    I think the meeting should be at woodyp's this time.

    I'm heading over there to see if the margarita machine is working.......

    I keep forgetting to get one! Maybe that's the secret to sparklypoolitis. After a few drinks you don't notice the little speck on the bottom of the pool!

    If you're really worried about it, get one of those battery operated, self contained, spa vacs to get every last bit of 'crud' out.

    I'm thinking about one of those little catfish vacuums. Of course my husband just rolls his eyes at me. He thinks I'm a bit OCD. I think he is right.

    Cindy, there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with a crystal clear, debris free pool! (It's what we all strive for )
