    SLAMming my swamp

    20160508_114914.jpg

    Finally getting to my pool.

    Long story...during the winter the cover blew off and froze to itself so I couldn't re-cover it. Pool was full of leaves and other stuff. After dealing with the debris, a leaking pump, a week of rain, and a torn achilles tendon...I am ready to SLAM this swamp!

    After one year of being pool stored, where the pool would look good until for a day of swimming, then 3 days cloudy, I found TFP. Last year my pool was clean in a matter of days...and thanks to you wonderful people, it stayed crystal all summer!

    Hoping for the same results this year!

    I will be posting updates and pics and test results.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I can't wait to see how fast you can do this! You know what needs to be done and how to do it! At least you do not have any livestock (frogs) in it!

    20160522_120909.jpgNot going to happen fast . Over the course of the last two weeks, I've had so many distractions and have only been able to attend the SLAM 2-3 times a day.

    But now I finally have the time. As you can see, the green is gone! I can just see the bottom when vacuuming.

    That is great progress. Yeah if happens. Do what you can, when you can. It will get done.
