    Ordered my TF100 Today!

    My first season as a pool owner was great. Followed pool builder's advise. Kept the pool balanced with my little test kit he gave me. Pool was algae free, bright & clear. I was quite proud of myself. This spring things headed south...after two months of being told by local pool store that I just had pollen in the pool. "Just brush more," he said. Now, I've got a full blown mustard algae bloom. I purchased the copper algaecide that he recommended. Shocked the pool like he recommended. Cleaned the filter like he recommended. But y'all know exactly what happened...that's why I'm here. Just sprung for the two day shipping on the test kit, so I can start SLAMMING this week. Currently "going" to pool school, so wish me luck. First hurdle, cleaning the slime off the filter cartridges. This site has been amazing on advise to get me started. I'll chime in if I need extra help. Thanks!!

    Welcome to TFP!

    You're way ahead of the game by having a test kit on the way and getting your feet wet in Pool School. If you'd like some help, go ahead and start a thread in the Algae - Prevention and Treatment area and put up your test results.

    Be sure to fill out your signature with details about your pool.

    Welcome!

    You're not alone. Perhaps you'd care to commiserate with a fellow sufferer who met the same pool store clerk in a different state? Super green pool problems with pool store suggestions

    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'm a two year pool struggler who has slowly gone through pool school because my husband just gave up. I just got my TF-100 delivered yesterday and I am using it to get my pool from slightly green to crystal clear! We can do this!!!!
