    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

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

    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. :p

    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.

    Talk to a pool guy today. He said it might be pink algae.

    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.
