    Sand sitting on the bottom

    As some of you know, we are battling iron in our water. Today the wife got in the pool to vacuum some of the sediment off the bottom. There is a lot of sand on the bottom from the filter. What is the best way to remove that sand? I'm assuming it happened because the filter had been moved so when we got everything hooked up it blew the sand into the pool...

    If the vacuum won't pick it up, try some of the suggestions in this thread: how-to-get-the-sand-dirt-from-the-bottom-of-my-hottub-t22892.html

    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.
