greenpoolWell, I know why it’s green, I just don’t know what to do about it.

Doesn’t that look refreshing?

I guess it was about 3 weeks ago when we had our play set building party.  We had about 15 kids in and out of it all weekend.  They had a blast.  But the poor pool hasn’t ever recovered and I am getting frustrated.  Especially since we’ve had a week of 100 degree weather and swimming would have been a great thing to do.

Is algae safe to swim in?

eeewwwww…..

Anyhow, I spent $64 on this pool.  I proclaimed it to be the “best $64 ever spent!”  But then we needed a cover, chlorine, a net, shock, a chlorine dispenser, a vacuum…oh wait.  Take that back, returned the vacuum and got a big brush instead.  Anti-algae stuff, replacement filters.

You see where I am going right?  I have spent a fortune “maintaining” my pool and it’s STILL GREEN!

*ugh*

Bob went online to find out what was going on.  We added baking soda since that’s supposed to do something with the Ph (or was it the alkalinity?).  I don’t even know.  My head is spinning.

Pools are a pain in the ass.

I could have spent money on tickets to Knotts Soak City for what I spent on the pool and subsequent supplies.
