In the summer months, few things are more inviting than a pool. Diving into the sparkling water helps you cool off, and young and old alike can have fun swimming and playing games. But Bethel, Ohio, grandma Lisa Pack was faced with a problem before her grandkids could come round to enjoy a splash.

Yes, Pack’s pool had gotten dirty, as it always does by the time that July rolls around. The grandma, 49, naturally feared that she now faced hours of work to get it into shape. Furthermore, she foresaw a long and dreary cycle of cleaning, scrubbing and running the filter. And the process promised to be an expensive business as well – the chlorine she’d need gallons of wouldn’t come cheap, after all.
