Back to Backwashing

with 2 comments

Susan and Nat are cleaning the house like hasn’t been done in ages, so I figure I’ll make myself useful.

Is this the first time I’ve backwashed the pool completely on my own (except for when Susan came out to check the chlorine tablet level, which I would have checked on anyway)? Either I need to write down the instructions (like, how much powder to add at the end, and how to put the pump back in the service mode), which I too easily forget, or else I need to do this myself more often so maybe it sinks in. Susan’s been doing too much of the pool maintenance far too long, I’m ashamed to admit.

Through the remainder of the week, we need to shock the pool, then backwash it again. Which Susan will definitely have to do, or at least supervise, since I’m clueless how to shock a pool. See?
