    Interesting couple of hours

    Even though I'd brushed it, my pool screen roof still had a lot of live oak blossom on it. We had our first storm for ages yesterday afternoon and my sparkly blue pool went to this within minutes

    Started the pump and filter and it went to this within 10 minutes

    About an hour later, sparkly blue again! I did take FC up from 7 to 16 just in case. Moral of the story, clean your screen!

    Well, you can't always stay up with everything. Good post Mike, and I would have done the exact same thing.

    At least I was luckier than this person. The same storm blew her grill into the pool! (image courtesy of Bay News 9). Not sure what water balancing will need to be done???

    Oh....not good. Not the worst thing ever though. Get the grill/components and crud out before they stain anything.
