I am kinda new to this forum, even tho I did post some things last summer. We had a terrible summer,spent thousands on chemical, had terrible algae blooms. It was a bad time. Really only got to swim about half the season. We had a pecan tree hanging over the pool, we just bought the house at the beginning of that season.
Over this winter, we have rid our yard and pool of that trashy tree. It dumped massive amounts of pecan garbage into the pool. Leaves, seed pods and pecans. We will see lots more sun on that pool this summer and a lot less green trash. So hopefully that will help.
We spent thousands last season,trying to keep the pool clear. I'm pretty sure most went down the drain. We listened to pool stores too much. I had just started lurking here and asking questions.
This week we purchased the Circupool SI45 from Discount Salt Pools. It arrived today. We are going to make a run of it.
One question. Our pool is Gunite, will it help if we repaint it? We are worried some of the algae spores may still be in the pores of the gunite.
The pool has been drained half way all winter. Since it has stopped being so cold, my husband has been working on getting it drained the rest of the way. We are taking this opportunity to check the floor drain and work on the light.
Is there anything else we should do to get the season off to a good start? Is there a way we can check our other pipes to make sure they are in good shape and no breaks?
I asked a lot of questions, I know. Hopefully someone will see it in their heart to help me along.
Thanks very much
