Re: Pool grout problem

II had a similar problem to the one you described after some 5 years. The Black is indeed algal mould and chlorine will Kill it, as will algaecide, but it wont change colour. It will remain black.

Guys using a hand fan?

Something I've never seen. Plenty of women using the ubiquitous hand fan as things start to get warmer, but has anyone seen a guy using them.

I'm seriously thinking about getting one since this time of year I seem to suffer quite badly with hot flushes.

Dependent on the age of the tree you plant ...straight away. However its good practice, especially for a Luna, or triploid tree, (flowers, set fruit, and ready fruit- at the same time) to pick off all flowers in the first year irrespective of the trees actual age. You want it to spread its roots out...
