Today while enjoying my sparkling clean pool, I noticed water is trapped in the pockets at the top of the liner:
Now, of course I had to stick my finger in there, and make the horrific discovery that it was slimey.
I immediately removed as much of the water as I could, wiped out what I could & filled it with pool water that I had bumped up to almost shock level. We just had a lot of rain so I'm certain the water in that channel was chlorine free.
While my pool never gets below my FC target (1ppm over target is the lowest it has been this season) and the water is clear, this "breeding ground" has me worried. I can't get into the channel below the top rail very good to wipe or brush it.
Am I being ridiculous (wife thinks so), or is this a bloom just waiting to happen?
I'm curious what other Intex owners do / don't do?
I think I'll be in the habit of dumping a few cups of fresh pool water in there every night when I check FC & pH.
I'm hoping this will be less of an issue as it gets warmer & we use the pool every day.
