Here We Go Again!!

 Here we go again, trouble with our pool(what else is new?)No matter what I do, despite daily cleaning and maintenance(scrubbing with the broom thing on the long pole and scooping with the net on the pole) and cleaning and chemicals and vacuuming several times a week the water is STILL cloudy and greenish(not as bad as the photo here but you get the idea.) We just can’t get rid of the algae and can’t get the water blue, sparkling, clean and clear no matter what. It’s really frustrating as I try so HARD and put in clarifiers, flocking agents, algaecide, “shock”, stabilizers,etc. yet we still  can’t keep up with the dirt ,algae and murkiness.The other day when I used the manual vacuum(as opposed to the automatic “robotic” vacuum we usually use) the hose kept coming off the vacuum 5 times AND I still couldn’t vacuum up all the sand from the bottom of the deep end AND the chlorine pucks came loose out of the container and sunk to the bottom of the pool! NOTHING can ever go RIGHT for me!

As well as that we’re still leaking water, the water level goes down every day 1-2 inches and we’re always leaving the hose in to re-fill it and lots of tiles and chunks of concrete have fallen off too but it just costs too much to have it fixed(last time a few years ago we had a few tiles put in it cost 800$!). I also had an idea that maybe the reason it’s so cloudy is the sand in the filter needs to be replaced; that now the filter is just recirculating the same dirty water, so we called the pool guys and  they’ll come sometime and get rid of the old sand(300 or so pounds of it!) and put in the new stuff, costing around 300$.I hope that this will FINALLY make a difference and that we can get rid of the algae and the fogginess once and for all but I won’t count on it since things have a habit of not working out for me…and no matter WHAT I do we seem to have to just live with cloudy green water.
