    Loving TFPC!

    When I was being pool stored I was constantly apologizing to guests about how my pool looked! Now I am happy to say I haven't went to the pool store in three weeks and I won't be going back either. Instead of apologizing to guests I am getting compliments on how nice my pool water is and people asking for help with their pool! My hubby is thrilled because as he says I have stopped the bleed on the checkbook. Thank you all so much!

    Completely agree even though I never had an honor of a cloudy/green pool as I got here before I went to the pool store for the first time.

    I think we need special area of the forum dedicated to these messages so newcomers could easily find it and feel more confident. Pictures of before and after would help a lot too. I, for one, was under impression that my water wasn't clear enough as I could notice small particles floating in the pool light at night- until I saw pics of some actual cloudy water .

    would you be kind enough to post a link? I was unable to find it - at least it is not listed under 'Forum' tab.
