Default I'm officially done......

cleaning my pool that is. I leave for Mexico two weeks and come back to a once crystal blue swimming pool to a purple tint on the wall, floor and cleaning hose. Apparently since my pool pump was off and alot of rain came when I was gone it created a purple tint. Did some research to find out the water has magnesium which create the purple. I guess $80 will be added to my monthly bill for a pool cleaner. Never ends people!

Pools are totally overrated.

Hot tubs is where the action is

It's 20 here with ice and snow, so I'm having a little trouble feeling sympathy for your pool problems lol.

I have a spa that's attached to the pool but we never turn the bubbles on. Nor do I ever use the heater.

It's 39 here so the pool is not being used. That's the good thing. Still......I don't want it to look nasty. The pool store said to shock and run it for 24 hours. Im not doing that but im running it extra hours to see if it'll clear up. If it doesn't i guess they sell stuff that gets rid of metals in the pool. Worse case scenerio is drain and acid wash the pool.

Don't own property but know that pools can be a life sucker for some folks who own one.
But, like others have said, no sympathy here in the dead of winter about your pool.

I have to second the + for hot tubs. I love getting in the hot tub when it is negative degrees outside. Body is warm while hair is completely frozen.

yeah.. pools are way over rated... so are boats. unless you use every week and often.

living in a community with HOA taking care of the pool.
and
renting a boat when needed.

so much better.

Ok. Got my water checked and the algaecide had a reaction with the cold weather. Plus my cyanuric acid level is way to high. Another reason for the people tint.
