    Default What a mess in my pool

    The pb's came out Friday afternoon to spray the texture for the sundek.

    They are 'not' done.

    But now I have a huge mess in my pool.I also had them redo some of the catiliver copeing around the pool, so now I also have little rocks (some chunky ones) inside the deep end by the returns and stair area. What is the best way to get that crap out? I mean , I should not even use the manual vacc to clean it, right??
    (I think it is not idea to get that stuff into my filter or my pipes which probably will clogg the line (maybe)?


    Thanks 4 any tips!!

    Do you have the manual vac that goes in the skimmer? You can use a skimmer plate that sits on the basket so the rocks will just get stuck in the basket without going into the pipes that lead to the filter.

    Dive in and pick them out by hand. It's fun, easy, and effective.

    I could, but there is just too much of a mess. I mean all that broken rock and dust.
    However the pool is very clear now

    Thanks for the tip on the manual vac, which we have, but have not used it or that attachment. PB suppose to be out 2day to finish up on the sundek and porbably have the pool cleaned out anyways.
