    Going back to tabs!!!

    Will this rain ever stop in Texas. I'm going back to tabs. Having the pool over flow every day for the last week, my CYA will never rise with tablets.

    If it keeps raining like it has, just throw them out in the yard and swim there!

    Tether that floater so it doesn't get washed downstream.

    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!

    We got over 12 inches in the last week. I did not even attempt anything with the pool until today, except for letting out water again and again. Thankful for the sun, today. The water temp had dropped to 72 and my yard is a swamp.
