New to this site, and really am learning a lot! Just got my nice test kit. What a difference. My pool is getting in shape for the summer.
I have always done my own pool maintenance, but this year I feel better prepared thanks to this site. Now, one thing I have never done with my pool is vacuum. I don't even have one. I do brush the pool. My pool does have a skimmer where I could attach a hose and get a simple vacuum. But my equipment is not set up for vacuum to waste. So, it would all go into the filter. Is there a problem with that? I guess it would mean I would need to clean my cartridge filters more often. Thoughts here? My pool does have a Polaris sweep on a pump, but that is not the same as vacuuming.
