    It's not green!

    Got back from vacation this afternoon. A quick sweep to be sure we hadn't been burgled, then to look at the pool. It's still sparkly! Whew!

    I pushed the Chlorine up to 17 about an hour before we left, it dropped to 8.0 in a week - a little below target for me, but no green. No CC. pH went up, no surprise there.

    Water level dropped about an inch, which was a relief. I was afraid it would drop more than that.

    I had a last look at the green pool at our hotel on our way out this morning. I could see the where the bottom step met the floor, which is actually an improvement. Yesterday morning I saw a woman standing in the pool, and I couldn't see her feet.

    What a contrast.

    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!
