    Sneaky Algae Hideout

    Decided to do a full vacuum the other day and removed my weir door to run the hose through it. Dang thing was full of water........and as I held it up to wasn't exactly BBB crystal clear pool water!@ My door is made out of three plastic pieces glued together and one piece started to pull away a bit. Anyhow, I expoxied it when it dried out. Just though I'd let folks here know yet ANOTHER place to check when you need to go to shock level.

    Re: Sneaky Algae Hideout

    During my 2nd year of operation and when I finally found this site, I found algae crud built up along skimmer plate edging, the pool light, as well as walk-in steps & vinyl liner trimmed edge. I now run the brush along these areas thoroughly several times a week. My robotic cleaner does not get these areas at all.
