My perfectly clear, sparkily water is no more ... We had major storms blow through last night like I have NEVER seen in this area before. I guess it was almost like a tornado, it may well have been, just read the Gov. declared a state of emergency. Not being used to tornado activity I was amazed at what I saw last night. A huge, mature pear tree in my backyard just snapped in half like a tootoothpick. I just watched, as there was nothing I could do, as it picked up my hammock and threw it over the side of the deck. Thankfully it didn't throw it into the pool. All the fencing from around the pool has been ripped away. I am lucky as I see no damage to the pool itself.
So going out this morning to survey the damge, the water is still very clear, but full of stuff! I just wanted to thank everyoneone here who conveys their wisdom, because even though I know the clean-up won't be an easy process, I know it can be done. I have learned so much from reading and following your advice that it will make this a LOT easier.
It is supposed to get to 100 degrees here today with high humidity again. I know a lot of people from the south and southwest are used to this, but it not real common in this area, but at least I can stay wet while I'm trying to clean out the pool...lol.
So cheers to you all and if I have any questions about this process, you can be sure that I know where to come first!! Take care all!!!
