ONEK PROOF: we didn't cover our pool this winter , was planning on draining and
starting from scratch , do you think this would wrk for ours ?
gotlucky6972: how did u let it get this dirty, haha..dang
DaGhostOfOldTomJoad: What setting do have your pump to?. Waste? Flush?
salondlali: Wow I just opted green to blue at 2 ands already clear thank you . I needed
to ask you that once I vacum it tomorrow what do I put in the pool. All
I've been doing s putting the bio guard chlorine tabs is shocking something
different. Thnks for help
maverick4684: Oh my god! I've spent weeks trying to get rid of this! Thank you for
posting. Going to try tonight. The summer is almost gone and the hotter
days were spent without a pool. Booo! Thanks again
kaycoleful: Pool looks uhhh!!
LynneR84: Worth a shot- just did the second half of the Green 2 Blue, have to let the
pump run for the rest of the hour, and then sit overnight. Can't wait to
see if this works to,or row after work!
Alma Farias: i had algae in my pool to its inground tho
Bob Le: If you want to develop a nasty skin rash lol
ragtopmann: I bought my pool vac on ebay for $45 which included shipping. Its called
the "Skooba Vac". It works excellent. I highly recommend this type of vac.
I wouldn't bother trying one that hooks up to the garden hose. Hope it all
works out for ya. Thanks.
ragtopmann: And um Nick....what about the tens of millions who water their lawn to make
it look pretty. Do you brush your teeth and leave the water on? If so,
you've wasted more than I did. Do you flush on #2's only? You know how many
gallons you use to shower each day? Go complain to a golf course. They use
anywhere from 20 million to 35 million gallons a year and your complaining
about my -1,000 gallons????
ragtopmann: If the pool is completely green to where you can't see 2 feet down, i
recommend the Green to Blue kit at Walmart. It's only $15 and it really
works. I couldn't believe it.
ragtopmann: Thank you everyone for all of the kind comments. I'm so glad I could help
Nadine Mosley: great idea...thanks!
ragtopmann: I use a skimmer and always keep 2 chlorine tablets in the skimmer. I run
the pump 12 hours a day minimum. Best to have a strong pump (1500 gl per
hour is good). I also use algea guard to keep the algea from coming back.
You'll want to replace the filter after cleaning the pool. There will be
algea in the old filter. You don't want to reintroduce the algea into the
pool or it will grow really fast. I rinse my filter every 2 days.
Adam Tech Channel: Woow thanks man, that's great idea!
MsAmandaloves: I have a problem where it won't vaccum. The tube is filled with water and
the pump is making big vaccuming noise but it Kay tent vacuum!! Help?
ragtopmann: Thats great to hear Nick....you're doing your part. :)
Chad Jorgenson: Thank you so much for sharing! We have been trying for some time to figure
out how to get rid of the dirt that accumulates on the bottom. We will
definitely try this.
Raquel T: OMG My husband bought the Green to Blue kit like you recommended. After the
treatment we vacumed just like you said we should. Now my pool is soo
crystal clear n beautiful. I can't believe how clear it looks. We were
getting nowhere without you. THANK YOU!!! P.S. My four kids say THANK YOU
cb1tf: Thanks for the tip! I've been looking every where for a way to keep my pool
free for the green monster and all of the videos have been for in ground.
Michael Garrett: I have an Intex 18'X48 pool and all I have to say to you sir is that you're
a FREAKING SAINT!!! I have been fighting this algae problem for 3 weeks! I
was more than beyond frustrated trying to remove the dead algae from the
pool. I followed your steps in the video and within an hour - the pool was
sparkling again. If you havent tried this -- I can tell you -- it works!!
Thanks again for posting this video....It saved me tons of money and hours
Nick: Why is the movie Good Burger at the very top?
Nick Seditious: There's gold courses??? Where lol you can relax bro I was busting your
balls but that is an absolute waste its a fine idea but of you YouTube how
to get rid of algae there's a few alternative ways other then turning your
yard into a swamp
larry hoova: Thanks for the share
cb1tf: Thanks I will give both of them a try.
BDean0yeah: OMG! THANK YOU THANK YOU! I have been trying to figure out how to get that
green off the bottom for days! We had 8-10 days of continuous daily showers
and my perfect pool went green,,,, My grandkids thank you and I'm
Gerry Reyes: dude this really helped thanks
weezxty: lets go swimming in green pool yeah lol
Muhammad Butt: Thanks
Raquel T: Thank YOU Thank YOU Thank YOU! My pool is my "baby" and it got algae in it
2 days ago I tried to vacum it today and I was getting no where. Now I know
why. I am gonna shock it again and try it your way.
ragtopmann: Corrections: the average water consumption of a gold course is 88 million
melissa martinez: Thank u so much for sharing !! My husband and i have the same pool a 14 ft
and i keep using the chlore bright from leslies and the algae comes right
back ! In about 2 weeks and all these long worms start to form! Can i use
an algeside after i use the chlore bright to prevent it!?
discharmingman: I didn't finish my thought in the last post....anyway, I'm going to try the
siphon method to remove the algae, that way the algae doesn't have to go
through the filter.
cb1tf: Also what kind of vac are you using??
John Chezy: By the way... I am not using the stock pump that comes with the walmart
pools. Those are junk. I bought a sand filter. Keep that in mind if you get
a vacuum hose with that adapter.
Koco Luv: Yes, "shocking" is something differ. It is a chloronate, but it shocks the
water and boosts chlorine quickly as well as some other duties
hbic3: You don't even need to use your pump to vacuum to waste. Just set up your
skooba vac with the hose, but don't connect it to the pump. Just syphon it.
Yes, you will have to suck on the hose yourself to get it started(if you
get any in your mouth just spit it out. Keep a glass of water nearby to
rinse your mouth if you're that kind), and just let it suck the water out
Koco Luv: I have a pool seemingly identical to the one in the video. Please
explain/tell me the pump setup. I noticed that the contaminated water is
set to flow directly out of the pool. Mine is connected to my pump/skimmer?
i jus waste filters. Also, problem of dirt being pumped back into the pool.
6977warrior1: Instead of "getting friendly" with the hose, use a small hand crank pump to
start the siphon. Saves your lips from getting a disease.
Benjamin Jury: omg you might be a life saver. i was a bout to just stab the pool and say
freak it, it's not worth all the effort or thousands of dollars i spend
every season on the piece of crap. but this might be a saving idea. thank
Sandy Petersen: Now I see this! For 3 days I've been vacuuming and the pool isn't any
cleaner. I'll bypass the pool return hose as you demonstrated. I can't
thank you enough.
Nick Seditious: And considering o do only flush when I crap and I shower prettt much every
other day and I dry brush and just use.mouth wash for lubricant for
brushing so I think.I'm in the clear.
michelle salazar: Thx for the vid. Did the same thing (at first), just vacuuming and having
the algae go right back into the pool. Finally disconnected the outlet hose
& let the water run out. Some people get upset for wasting water but I
figure we're recycling the water to hydrate the grass & anything else it
goes to. At least it's not getting back into the pool. And if they want to
complain, let them vent, not gonna change what we're doing. Way I see it,
I'm paying the water bill, not them...so get over it.
ragtopmann: That's great to hear Nick....you're doing your part. Yep, I couldn't
believe how much water is used on golf courses. Freakin crazy!! They should
play on fake grass. :)
anamcinnis1: Very Helpful!! THanks for the tip on putting hose in water! Also.. what
kind of vacuum are you using?
11BravoMike: Glad you got it worked out.
John Chezy: Took me forever to figure out that dumping the waste water was KEY! This
changed everything. Walmart's blue to green worked great. It dropped
everything to the bottom and I could vacuum it right out. Once my hose was
filled with water I could vacuume either with the pump (lose water faster)
or without the pump (gravity suction, slower vacuuming). Amazon has a great
adapter for the intake on INTEX pools for a 1 1/4" vacuum hose. Screws
right in "Kokido 5 pc hose adapter set" I couldn't post link.
yee11111: Thanks ragtopmann. I have an 18' X 48" Intex Pool and saltwater system. I
took my crappy cartridge filter out then I disconnected the outlet end of
my pump, laid it on the ground started the pump used a vacuum head and
sucked everything off the bottom. Took me 30 minutes and lost maybe 3" of
water. I put everything back told my oldest son to go get his mama and
little brother. They came out amazed and of coursed asked "How did you do
that?" I coulda took the credit, but gave it all to you.
NickoleMosh: OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH.we did what you said to our pool I woke up this
morning and it was crystal clear. Thank you thank you thank you
