    Howdy Ya'll

    Hey Y'all .

    New to the inground pool world

    Been swimming for years LOL!

    My Girl freind has this pool in her yard inground & it got away from her & the Frogs took over.
    Yes its now a mini swamp!

    the "pool Guys" want a lot of money ,I think with some advice from knowledgable people I can pump it out pressure wash it & get it back to up & running.

    Them guys said something about ACID washing which takes a layer of I guess grout off?

    Muratic acid seems quite caustic ,can bleach & a spray bottle & a scrub brush disinfect it?

    I will be heading to her place in a couple of days & would like to arrive with at least a game plan

    Thank you very much!

    Acid washing will dissolve scale.

    She may or may not have a lot of scale, you won't know until you see it, which may not be until it's empty if the water is that green.

    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!
