Freeze it, lol.

My pool at my modified 2-story mansion never stays clean. It took 5 SIMS working at once to clean it and then it would be dirty the next day again. So, I gave up and just froze it till I want to use it.

I don't know if there is anyway of actually keeping these pools clean (the pools at my other houses are all odd shapes and can go weeks without cleaning). It just seems as if they pick one pool in the town to be the constantly dirty one or something?

Is it still a big pool? Try to clean it with several sims. E.g. 1 sim for 4x4 pool. If it's not clean, yet, let them do it again.
Some players pointed out, you have to stay with your sims. That's not my experience. I only have small pools and let them clean one time a day :)

If you have enough lp to use to clean your pool, use it. It cleans straight away as opposed to having to have several sims cleaning at the same time or repeated cleans when really dirty. I also found by using lp to clean, it stays cleaner longer !!! :P

I have them, too. I just never figured out how to use it. I'm sure it's very simple but perhaps it's too simple for me to grasp :lol:

I have found that if you have a Sim clean the larger pools while you stay on the property, you will need only one Sim to clean. So You can have one clean while you are doing other actions with other Sims. Or you can do it while surfing the net or checking email. If you can't stay on the property, use two or more Sims to clean. Also keep in mind that in the evening, the pools do not sparkle even when clean. So they can seem dirty when they are not.
