    D1 Breeze or Sojourn thoughts?

    Hi everyone - I have a 20x40' vinyl in-ground pool that was neglected for years before we bought this house. Opened up on May 1 and it was completely black...see horrendous "before." Didn't find this community until a couple weeks ago and we've been religiously SLAMming ever since - after we...
