I've posted on a couple of the other forums on this site with great results. Based on my questions, I'm thinking this is the best place to post so here it goes.
Our pool was completed back in February and the PB had to vacuum the pool a couple of times to get the bottom of the pool clean. Once thing I have noticed is there is always dust on the steps that are located on the steps that are next to the spa overflow. I also have notice the same thing on the seat that is under my waterfall located on the backside of the pool.
My PB treated the flagstone coping but did not treat the flagstone spa overflow nor did he treat the moss boulders/rocks that the waterfall was built with. When i asked him about this he said that he doesn't treat these area's and that it was not necessary. I guess my question is that with the dust continuing to show up in these areas, does it make sense for me to treat these myself in hope to alleviate this issue?
That leads to my second question. When brushing these areas, i know that the pool cleaner probably does not clean the dust off the bottom. It never seems to get any worse but I can see when i brush the bottom of the pool, it always kicks up dust. My PB never told me that I would need to vacuum the pool and therefore I have never purchased a vacuum head or a hose to do this task. Is it necessary to vacuum the pool where the cleaner runs for 3 hours a day or is this just a personal preference thing?
Thanks again for all of the help!
