    On Vacation and...

    So we're at the beach and all I can think about is I wish I brought my test kit. Always curious about the water I'm in. My wife hates to even think about a pool other than ours. Spending most of the time at the beach, but our youngest still likes to hit the pool. I'm a certified pool snob.

    Was on away on vacation for 10 days and when we returned our pool was......well within limits. Thanks TFP. This isn't really as hard as I thought it was going to be.

    We have dodged the thunderstorms so far. They have got very close, but have not directly hit. So far a very enjoyable vacation after a three year absence.
