Leaves, etc. in my pool.

Postby fundiver » Thu 14 Aug, 2008 15:54

Hi, I'm presently taking care of a 900,000 litre (25,000 gal) in ground pool here in Northern Italy. Being surrounded by trees, many leaves and insects fall into the water and it is a full time job skimming the surface and vacuuming. Two trees especially, one chestnut and one hazelnut plus a large stand of bamboo deposit large quantities. I have to continually check water quality levels and being hot (water temperatures are 26-29°C) I have problems keeping the green algae under control. Will this organic matter especially degrade the quality of the water and is it advisable to cut overhanging trees back from the pool? I hope someone out there can help.

1, use the pool cover to prevent the leaves and insects falling into your pool.

2,I recommend some vacuum cleaners to clean your pool.
