Actually, it's "My Family the Pool Snobs", but it was an incident with my daughter that brought this to my attention.
This weekend, she was invited to a pool party with the youth group at church. The party was at a pool in a subdivision. We pick her up from the party, and she doesn't mention anything about the pool. Last night, we all went in our pool for the evening, and it was then that she made some of these comments:
"The pool at that party didn't look quite right. It looked green. My hand looked green in the pool. And I could hardly see my foot in the water. It was cloudy, and I was thinking, is that algae?" She mentioned to her friends that our pool is much clearer, and how we maintain it with bleach. Ignorant friends pipe in about how you can't do it that way. She defends our use of bleach. She also mentioned to us that one of her friends complained about her eyes burning, and my daughter told her, "The chemical levels are probably off." Then the thought hit her (my daughter), OH NO!! I SOUND JUST LIKE MY DAD!!!!!
After discussing this a bit, and noticing how neat the moonlight looked on the bottom of our pool (something I've never noticed in a public pool), we concluded that it's possible that none of us will ever be satisfied again with a public pool. We'll probably have to take our test kit with us on our next vacation. Please tell me that we're not the only ones to do this.
