Like so many others I bought a house with a pool. I've been dealing with an algae issue (and all but have it under control thanks to TFP!). Today while vacuuming I decided to move the steps and scrub inside there. Oops! I broke a bag open and dirtied what was a blue almost clear pool.
Anyay, I need to re weight the steps. At first I was thinking 3 or 4 bleach bottles filled with gravel should do it but this is what I pulled out a few minutes ago:
6 concrete pavers
2 bags of sand
2 bags of gravel

The plastic on the sand and gravel bags has pretty much disintegrated. So that's gonna be a fun mess to vacuum up.
I have a four step plastic molded thing. (Pic attached)
My question is how much weight do I need? Based on what I pulled out 3 or 4 bottles of gravel isn't going to do it. So based on another thread here I'm thinking about filling PVC pipe with concrete to make weights. Anybody have a suggestion on how much weight would be a good start?
Thanks in advance.
