    Too Constant??

    Hello Everyone,

    Over the past month, my pool chemistry has been too constant. Mild drop in chlorine is all that I have to now. I lowered my pH today after about 1.5 months. Is it a good thing? Or is it just because it's winter (although this year's Texas winter was hopeless)? When I look back at the past 6 months, when I had to constantly add this, test that and stuff like that.

    You're not imagining things. Our cooler weather certainly will slow-down chemistry. Mine hasn't changed much lately either. That's nice, but don't get too spoiled. If we continue to have these warm days, we'll be back to adding chlorine more & more every day.

    I wish there was a little snow. To be honest, we only had about 10 days of cold weather. Getting fed up with this winter. Where is the snow??

    I am gearing up for the summer already.

    Yes. We really had no winter to speak of this year. I'm cutting grass and cleaning the pool more & more already. Ugh. Well, soon it will be time to

    I took a dip last week when the weather hit 24C last week. Only could stay in for 30 secs. The water was very very cold.

    I have to get lawn done by a professional. Wasn't able to do it after coming back from vacation. The grass is about 7-8 inches tall now.

    Thought about mowing this week. But then I remembered I have to clean the DE filter. Which is like a whole days work.

    Hehe! I tried so hard to manufacture a move up north. But my project wouldn't allow it!
