After draining the pool to get rid of all of the smelly water (Ewww)
and pulling out the nasty old filter cartridges and bailing it out to get the last little bits of icky out and scrubbing it out with bleach...
I refilled it with fresh water, (Danny helped)
bought it new filter cartridges, and a new Polaris pool cleaner.
I am lovingly conditioning the new water to be perfectly balanced and clear. My plan is to keep it very very nice all season.
I hope it is really friggin hot this summer and that you all come over and enjoy the pool with us. Otherwise I just wasted a perfectly good Sunday.
