I'm guessing the biggest hurdle will be getting your parents used to their
once clear blue spotless pool becoming a green, growing fish-filled swamp.
It's a completely different look. The chlorine kills everything, so once
you remove it, algae is going to grow all over those nice painted sides. I
know this because, when I was a kid, there were two abandoned public
swimming pools by the river in Toledo Ohio. We had lots of fun catching
the various kinds of fish that people would drop in them. There were
_dense_ mats of filamentous algae in them. Of course they were stagnant
with no flow or filtration.
