    Interesting story on CNN about public pools

    http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/...ool.cnn?hpt=C2

    The test strips test Free Chlorine, and if you're not the one in charge of maintaining the pool, should be good enough.

    But I'd rather have my own pool, where I know what I'm swimming in.

    I commented about that site earlier today. I assume that you had to enter it as "unhealthy" because you have sufficient FC for your CYA.
