    Clear gel like substance

    I was slamming my pool because I thought I might of had mustard algae. During the process I placed all of my equipment in the shallow end during and I removed it today. When I pulled my brush out there was this strange clear gel like substance all over only the metal part. Any idea what it could be? You can bare;y see it in the corner where the brush head meets the shaft. All the white stuff is what was left after it sat out in the sun a bit.

    I don't know what it is chemically, but it's normal.

    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!
