    Pool full of Leaves and Green

    We have an Above ground 30 foot pool.. We have a ton of leaves in the pool and the pool bottom is very slimy. What will be the best way to turn the green pool to crystal clear?

    Welcome to TFP!

    Start with Defeating Algae

    You'll want a pool leaf rake to get the leaves out to help speed the process along. It looks like this:

    Welcome!

    Assuming you want to do this as fast and cheaply as possible...
    1) Order a test kit. Recommendations TF100 with XL option. Speedstir makes it easier, faster, more accurate, and fun.
    2) Start scooping out debris with leaf net, as above.
    3) When arms and back get tired, go inside and start reading the pool school articles about algae and the SLAM process.
    4) When Pool school, makes you feel like read some of these for inspiration

    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!
