Hi, it has been a year since I became a pool owner. Except for first few months and ever since I found this site, I have been maintaining the pool on my own. Thanks for all your help!
Main question I have is... I don't have any trees around (Arizona) my pool, not many in my neighbors houses too. So, leaves are not a problem. But, dust is... I have been brushing my pool every week. But, lately noticing my pool water is not clear as it was last year. Mostly noticing dust at the bottom of the pool. Must every pool owner have a pool Vacuum? My test results are all ok... except CH of about 550 now. But, I read it is normal in Arizona.
What else am I missing? All I do is test every few days and maintain FC, PH ... every week for TA, CH, 3 times year CYA. Brush the pool and clean the baskets every week. what else should I be doing regularly? I have leaf rake but don't have to use those much.
