    Testament to the method

    We just returned from a month long holiday and wanted to report that my pool was in excellent condition all thanks to the TFP method! We had a friend stay at the house and clean the pool, but I really have my pool dialed in and believed that all would be well. We had a major rain event daily the first two weeks we were gone and even had one day with 6.5" of rain. Test results on returning were:

    FC 8.5
    CC 0
    PH 7.5
    TA 70
    CH 220
    CYA 80
    Salt 3000
    Borates 50

    I raised the CH and salt and swam away. While I don't advocate that everyone treat their pool this same way, I just wanted to say that with the help of this forum, this is the norm for my pool and I want to say thank you again for all the incredible information on this site.

    Rain! Rain. Rain sounds nice. I look forward to it...hopefully this winter around here. Glad your pool is ship-shape after the time away! One less 'kid' to worry about!
