Ever have one of those moments where you just go 'doh'...what the #%*@ was I thinking...then you can only laugh about it...lets hear about it, maybe it'll help some new pool owners out and make us all laugh
I'll start...so the last few weeks I've had just a ton of dust/dirt in the pool, well, not that bad but I couldn't sweep it away, the Polaris wasn't getting it...it just kept coming back and back...all of the sudden I was thinking, when was the last time I backwashed the pool...........doh...............it had been a couple of months Needless to say, after a nice through backwash, a couple of sweeping movements and the bottom is spotless again. I figured there weren't that many people that would find humor in that so I turn it over to you all...I know we've all had those moments...
I'll give you another one (because I'm so good at it)...We were into the house about three months, I figured I was doing pretty good, all of my testing was fine, water was looking great, and I did the DE backwash...put the DE in the skimmer then about 45 minutes later it sounded like my pump was trying to kill someone, of course as a new pool owner I shut everything down and called a local repair company (good guys, always treated me fair)...he came right out, walked to the back and started laughing...all the DE had clumped up in the pump skimmer basket...taught me to put the DE in a little slower
Now it's your turn!
