    I have used super clean in the past but I hate to get it in the pool. I guess like bleach mix would be best...

    I have used a bleach/water mix of roughly 20-25% bleach along with a nylon bristle brush followed by a plain water rinse from a garden hose.

    A teenager. Maybe even a Tweenager.

    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!
