    Cleaning stairs

    I seem to never be able to get all the algae off my stairs with my big pool brush. I never really worried about it before, I figured a little bit of algae wouldn't hurt. But now I've changed my tune and decided I want a sparkling clean pool. I'm contemplating getting in the pool and using a toothbrush on it. Or just pulling the stairs out and letting the sun kill it? What do you guys do?

    Pull them. There's likely algae growing behind or under.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    And just leave them in the sun for a few days? Or take a toothbrush to them?
