Can't vacuum


Bronze Supporter
I'm having a rheumatoid arthritis flare in my ankles and can't hobble around the pool to vacuum daily (I have a large oak tree which drops immature acorns in the pool every darn day). Will my pool be okay if I vac it once a week? I managed it yesterday.

My test results are
FC 7.0
CC 0
pH 7.5
TA 100
CYA 40
as of last night.

If you can swing the $, robot cleans while your resting in easy chair taking a nap.
Not that I would EVER do something like that!

It will probably be fine. Maybe up the chlorine a dab to make up for the organics but U need a wall-e! I have an auto immune disease as well & my intex automatic pool cleaner has been my bff! I have a cordless vac for the steps/edges but i just use it when i feel like it. I am short & i have a 33’ pool so the only way to manually vac most of my pool is from the inside.
