    It's all about the water

    I took this picture two weeks or so ago. I've done very little to my pool over the last few weeks yet my water still looks this good. Other than an occasional vac and then adding bleach, all I've done is enjoy the pool. I invite you to share pics of your clear water here too!

    It doesn't get any better than that.

    SO, you are saying you just used Bleach to get the water Clear like that?

    You don't actually let people in that cesspool do you?

    You pour bleach in it? And acid? OMG!! It's a miracle everyone's skin hasn't just peeled off!

    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!

    I also do very little to my pool. Ever since I got it cleaned up it has been very easy to maintain. The Polaris actually helps too!!

    Re: It's all about the water

    It was in very bad shape. I ripped it off during the SLAM/cleanup and haven't put anything in its place yet. Still haven't figured out what I want to do. If I want to just do a regular diving board or if I want to do something different.
