    Vacation coming...local Pool "technicians" that subscribe to the TFP methodology?

    It would be nice to find a listing of local pool techs that use the TFP techniques. Is there such a thing?

    I would trust a 12 y/o neighbor over a "tech" to add chlorine based on instructions. Best plan of attack is to manage CYA a hair low so that a floater can get you by for a week.

    Same plan if you had cats or dogs. Find someone to visit every 2 days. A pool is a pet

    A pet...my dog is virtually maintenance free, but the pool...not so much! I guess there is some logic there in that it is alive, at least somewhere in the pool.
