    Pollen vs Mustard Algae vs Dirt?

    You wouldn't believe it but it appears to be working, magic! 10 bottles of 10% bleach last night and we're moving!

    Pollen vs Mustard Algae vs Dirt?

    Ok thanks for the response! Does that clear up the dirt/debris or is that something else? I'm not trying to be rude but it just doesn't look like the algae I've seen in the pool before. It's like a fine dust that settles and then gets stirred up. Also, it is recommending what seems like a lot...

    Pollen vs Mustard Algae vs Dirt?

    Hi! So I've lurked here and tried to find an answer. I *think* we have dirt and pollen but I can't understand why it would still be in the pool. By my calculations and the pool store's we're good on water and if I take a sample it is clear but obviously by the pic it isn't. Symptoms Started...

    Curious on lifetime of a liner pool's shell

    We have a pool and the liner was replaced last year. The pool was built sometime in the mid 80s and the sidewalls are definitely plywood, I saw them when the liner pulled away from the coping a bit. The pool is about 40 ft by 12-14 ft with a 9ft deep end. Just planning for the future and...

    Advice on purchasing home with large trees near pool (root intrusion?, pics)

    Thanks so much for the pics! That makes a ton of sense, before using this forum I didn't realize there were sidewalls (which there are) and the weight of the water at the bottom must be intense. The property is actually in Memphis, we're headed that way. I lived there before and remember how...

    Advice on purchasing home with large trees near pool (root intrusion?, pics)

    Yep and just found out the owner had the canopy professionally raised and some (healthy) pruning done last year with receipts. It gets murderously hot here so the extra shade in the summer will be welcome so we aren't swimming in a hot pool.

    Advice on purchasing home with large trees near pool (root intrusion?, pics)

    Thanks everyone! The pool inspector found a few things which look like they'll fix. I did not realize that a liner pool is built with a frame around it, that tells me there's at least some root barrier and in the future could be re-enforced should the trees intrude too much. I'm thinking I'll...

    Advice on purchasing home with large trees near pool (root intrusion?, pics)

    Thanks so so much! We have had a pool inspection and it came back clean but I know that they can miss things. Some answers: 0) Pool and sunroom appear to be built in 1984/86 based on building permits. 1) That decking is not new from what I can tell. There used to be a hottub on the concrete...

    Advice on purchasing home with large trees near pool (root intrusion?, pics)

    Hi! Like the title says, we're a little concerned about maintenance and a lot concerned about the roots intruding. It is a 38k gallon with a (newer) liner. The 2 tree sit between the pool and the house, maybe 8-10 feet from the pool. Reading online it seems like this is less than ideal, the...
