The water in springs is very nutritious so there are lots of algae in the water, many floating on the surface. To keep pool clean is almost like a Sisyphean task. As hard as this guy tries, he'll never run out of work. Also his equipment is interesting. Made only with local natural resources, palm leaves. Leaves are lined on a wooden stick he throws into water and pull it with a rope round the pool, pulls it out, cleans the algae and repeats the procedure.
