    Before and After Pool Pics

    We are kinda' DIY-ish people (yea, cheap) but before we got help from PF we really were wondering if we had taken on too much!








    DH is still working on landscaping issues. We had the pool replastered in March and currently caulking & painting. Once we got our pool 'cleaned' last year with the help of PF mods. we learned the BBB method and found it is pretty easy to maintain....even for newbies! Sean, thank you for this site! Joyce btw, before you ask, yes, dh did power wash the deck!

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Stunning difference!
    You'd never guess it was the same place. Your landscaping is so lush and the pool so sparkling.

    Super job.

    Thanks, Lynzizzle

    You found TFP and your pool will soon be the oasis you want it to be. Remove the word 'hopeless' from your vocabulary and replace it with 'sparklypoolitis' !
