I clean the pool every day yet they feel slime, whats up


The slimy feel can be a result of unbalanced water. Total Alkalinity, pH and hardness are key parameters to balance so that the water is not scale forming or aggressive. Also, maintaining a proper sanitizer level (chlorine) is important. There are secondary chemicals that can be added that tout the advantage of affecting the feel of the water. Borates, for example, affect the feel of the water to make it feel soft.
