The pool's looking like a swimming pool again! We have to let the chemicals and salt mix, but maybe tomorrow or Monday we can swim! Temperature's still in the 90s Fahrenheit here, so it's plenty warm/hot!
Husband has been working like a Trojan all week, mixing, vacuuming, adding water, pumping out water, driving across town to the pool company, then doing it all over again. Gradually it changed from dark green to medium, then light green, then we could see bottom! The vacuum for the algae on the bottom is a strange contraption attached to a tube that suctions it out onto the ground. He has it piped away from the house, and our yard it big so it's not going into our neighbor's yard either. It hasn't rained for 2-3 weeks, but the salt, etc probably isn't good for the grass.
Now it's blue and pretty again! Looking like it used to:
