    Leaves in pool

    My winter cover was destroyed in a storm last fall and tons of leaves blew in and now they have turned to muck. What is the best way to clean this mess up? Thanks to all of you!

    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!

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
