pool had just been filled and it was perfect...............
wife and landscaper designed a "walking path" from the back of the pool deck to wander thru the back landscape area. the slope toward the pool had not been addressed.
the drain boxes had not yet been installed in our landscape. add no mulch and alot of mud and rain and you get a big mess......... right in the pool it went, mud and all.
it was right after that i asked the PB to change the cartridge filter to sand. i think i cleaned those carts 5 times to get all the mud and dirt out.
