I was looking in the filter and skimming the pool and it gives me time to think and ponder navel lint which brings up the point.
On a scale of 1 to 10 how bad are different things that are likely to find their way into a pool? just talking reasonable quantities of each and I am just making a guess but…
1 rain water
8 decaying plant matter
10 fecal matter.
10 dead animals
how about things like the odd leaf, dog hair or a few grass clippings? i wonder most about the dog hair.
i am not talking large quantities of anything. I clean the skimmer and skim the surface with a pool skimmer daily and I have a great pool and take pride in staying “on top of it” but I wonder if I am obsessing a little too much.
