    To Fill Or Not To Fill - Is the question

    Continuation of the saga...

    I drained the pool and had this layer of floc/dirt on the bottom. I was going to try to rig my pool vaccuum, but my idea didn't work . The next question is, do I refill the pool now with the gunk on the bottom and vaccuum it when it gets so full or do I continue to flush the gunk out thru the drainplug.

    When I get the pool refilled, I want to the the step by step instructions on what to do next after its filled with fresh water. I hope I don't sound retorical. I have read pool school and its a lot to take in.

    Thanks so much!

    Borrow a wet/dry shop vacuum. You usually have to remove the paper element inside before you start vacuuming up water.

    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!

    Yay! I was able to borrow the wet dry vac from my office. I am gonna give it a go when I get home from work today. =)

    Then, I'm gonna refill the pool and use the BBB method.
