OK - quick/not-so-quick question - is there a simple chemical (I know, I shouldn't ask this), or perhaps mechanical method, for more quickly removing particulates from the BULK of the pool water.
Double-edge sword, I have lots of nice indigenous landscaping (and some foreign transplants as well ) all around my pool. And don't even get me started on those mesquite trees!! So I'm basically out there once a day (at least) with the skimmer pole and KreepyKrauly runs 24/7 whenever the pump is on (I take him out when we swim). But let me be clear, my pool water is beautifully clear and sparkly. However, I do see particulates in the bulk of the water, stuff that's obviously blown in debris that has not floated to the top or settled to the bottom thereby avoiding death by skimmer or KK. AT night, with the pool light on, you can see all the little bubbles in the water as well as the debris a little better.
Just wondering if there's anything quick and simple that won't totally hose my nice looking pool or it's lovely chemistry. I'm sure the stuff eventually settles out somewhere (top or bottom), but if I'm feeling impatient, or in the mood to show off to a neighbor, is there anything I can do short of clear-cutting the beautiful landscape and reducing it all to rocks and sand???
