Pool Chemicals Acid

I have alot of black algae on the walls of my pool. What is the easiest and least expensive way to get rid of?

it? chemicals? drain and acid wash? anything else??/

You need to shock it with pool chemicals.

Depending on whether you have vinyl or cement walls, which you didn’t state if you have above or inground, then if you have cement, then you can add a few gallons of bleach.

After a few hours, brush the walls down.
Let it settle.
Vacuum it up and then backwash.

Keep your chemicals in check afterwards.
Add algecide.

Do auto or robotic home and above ground pool vacuum cleaners work?

The home one I saw at Costco.com is the : iRobot Roomba Scheduler Vacuuming Robot; does it pick up dog fur from carpets?

The pool vacuum is here that we are looking at: http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11115401&search=pools&Dx=mode+matchallpartial&Mo=74&cm_re=1_en-_-Top_Left_Nav-_-Top_search&lang=en-US&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&Sp=S&N=5000043&whse=BC&ViewAll=75&Ntk=Text_Search&Dr=P_CatalogName:BC&Ne=4000000&D=pools&Ntt=pools&No=48&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Nty=1&topnav=&s=1
Does anyone have either or both types of these automatic vacuum cleaners than can tell us whether they actually work or not? They are expensive so we don’t want to invest if they don’t. We are crunched for time and need something like this to get the jobs done. Thank you!
Thanx, I really appreciate your review!

I have the home vac (the Sage – which is designed for pet hair) and LOVE it. Now, I only have a cat – not a dog but it works great!!! This is my 2nd Roomba & I am hooked. I too, am looking into the pool vac. So far, have read great reviews.

Good luck. P.S. Roomba support is wonderful & if not satisfied, return policy is great & easy.
