    How do I get this out of my pool?

    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    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!

    Re: How do I get this out of my pool?

    I feel sorry for them, the worst I ever had in my pool was one of these:

    It's front bumper went through the liner so there was not a big fight to clean up the water at least (it was a different model year with a bar style bumper), the scuff marks from it going in are still on the coping. The real amazing thing about the whole incident is it just cleared the double french doors (well the doorway), sheered the doors off at the hinges, but did not break the glass panes.


    p.s. It looks like these things happen much more often than you would think, while googling the video shown above I found 2 other incidents of cars in pools in the last 2-3 weeks, one other in California and one in a hotel pool in Florida.

    I think all houses sold with pools should come with a Pool Fax!

    I believe he should have his pool tested for metals. But that's just my (non-professional) gut feeling.

    Sad thing, my first thought was how cloudy the water looks.

    The first thing you need to do is get yourself a proper test kit...
