So today is my Saturday, having a bloody mary and cleaning the pool after a dust storm that blew there the other day with 60 mph winds, what a mess, organic debris of all kinds and not to mention the dust, looks like pounds of it when brushing the pool:crazy: so this is my day, how is everyone doing, been a while since I've posted.

sorry to hear that, how often does this happen? I have to live with several trees that overhang the pool and drop debris all year round, they have become the target of all my animosity. Cleaning the pool 3 times a week gets old.

Hi Steve! That wind storm was of epic portions from what I hear! It moved rocks into a pool dig in TX :shock:

You might need to find a way to vacuum to waste to get that sand out!

Rocco, this is the second dust storm in the last 4 months, even with the solar cover on there is still quite the mess to clean up.

Hi Kim, I will be vacuuming the pool in 45 minutes when the timer turns the pump on, the dust was so thick that we could only see the immediate area around the house.
