I had to wait for a plumber this morning, so I went out back and spent some time brushing the pool and checking the chemistry. When he arrived, I led him around to the cleanout, near the pool. He looked at the pool and said, "Wow, your pool looks great! How do you keep it looking so good?" My answer was simply, "Keep on top of it, watch the chemicals. Especially Chlorine"
It really did look good this morning in the full sun. But the deck was a mess and all wet so I waited to take pictures.
Once the drain was cleared, there was the usual, "Run a lot of water through this." Well, I ran a lot of water through it - pumped straight out of the pool. About three inches, since it rained a whole lot yesterday. By my calculations, about 700 gallons That high CYA is gonna go down!
