    Dealing w/ dirt around steps

    How do you deal with this issue? Just move the steps so the polaris can get all that dirt? I was really shocked to see it, as the rest of the pool is super duper clean.

    Personally, I don't do anything til the end of the year when the steps finally come out to winterize.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    I put my hose behind the steps when I refill and that washes some of the dirt out. I also push water against them when I brush to help circulate there. And, when adding bleach, I pour some of it directly behind the steps.

    A couple of times during the swim season I move the steps and brush under the bottom step.

    I don't stress out over dirt or algae under the steps as long as it stays there. If it starts to creep out I spend a little extra time brushing around the bottom step.
