I joined in July and had many problems, including constant algae. I just didn't know what to do about the pool. It was a constant source of frustration. This site has saved me. I've learned so much. I was skeptical, but I converted to bleach this week and my pool water is absolutely beautiful. It just sparkles. I've never seen it look like this. The water is crystal clear. Tonight I went out just before dark to collect my sample for testing. The deep end was so blue. I just thought to myself "how gorgeous." It was a spiritual moment. I've bought a little fountain that fits nicely in the corner out of the way. It sounds like a waterfall. I have my own "oasis" right outside my back door. What a stress buster!!!
I just want to thank everyone who has helped me and has been so nice to me. The tools and the advice on this site are first class.
Thanks so much. I am proud to be a member of this forum.
