  @jaldeborgh One conservation tip that might help is to put your pool pump on a timer. Ours only runs 2 hours per day and the water stays crystal clear. You can turn it on at the timer when you vacuum ...

  You registered in this forum just to reply to a 13-year-old thread? WTF is wrong with you? Also, your info is a joke. Moving here on section 8 with 4 children is an absolutely awful idea. Bye.
