Well... Having life interrupt my pool maintenance, and almost everything else, for a couple months, I was dreading the day when I knew I had to go out there. When I got to the edge of the pool, one of my eyebrows went up. After inspecting the pool for any fish, squid, or dolphins that might have magically appeared, it was time to get to work.
Using the method of taking care of your pool that you find here in these great forums, I must say that over the past 2 or 3 years, I've never had anything but perfect crystal clear water. This is the first problem I've EVER had.
So lets get to the pics, cause that's what we all love!
The top two pics is what made my eyebrow raise. The bottom left pic is exactly 12 hours later. While the bottom right is 96 hours later, and the water is crystal clear and the readings say it's ready for swimming! Oh, except that pesty temperature reading... 48 degrees. It does need a final vacuum, but I broke my wrist between the first pictures and that last one... So it may have to wait until the spring. Overnight FC readings are stable, and I'm lovin' it!
Best of all, it was under 25 bucks to fix this problem. Try that at a pool store!
Thanks again everyone!
Enjoy the pics!
