    I wonder if it wouldn't look better if you went to the pool store and bought a few hundred dollars worth of phosphate remover, clarifier, and all-purpose snake oil?

    Just kidding!

    Looks great!

    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!

    Ha! You know the guy that tested my water at the pool store when I first opened it and found out my CYA level was at 184 called me and tried to sell me phospahte remover and told me it would cost me $40 a bottle!!! I said no thanks! That was after I found TFP...I am so blessed! No more pool stores for me...no more trichlor and no more dichlor! Give me some BBB!!!!!

    You aren't showing off...you are providing evidence that the process works.
    Nice work!

    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.

    The only thing more rewarding than seeing it in pictures is when people are at your place and they notice the difference.

    Re: A FEW MORE PICTURES OF MY POOL AFTER FINDING TFP

    Well I definitely have "Sparklypoolitis" And I am never getting rid of it! LOL! For all of you sceptics out there about the BBB method...I have used Trichlor & Dichlor for 10 years. Just switched to the BBB method and the TF100 test kit and my pool has NEVER looked this good! I swear when you are looking at it in person while the pump is not running it appears to have no water in it it is soooo clear! I am very HAPPY!

    Re: A FEW MORE PICTURES OF MY POOL AFTER FINDING TFP

    Been keeping my pool at a steady 9 ppm FC but I think I am going to bump it up some...maybe to 11 ppm with my cya level at 80. I don't know if it's just me but it just doesn't look as sparkly. I have been shutting pump down at night but still running approx. 13 hours per day. I also aimed the eyeball down a little and I think this may have made a difference in my waters appearance. What do you think. Should I aim it toward the bottom of the pool or closer to the top?

    Re: A FEW MORE PICTURES OF MY POOL AFTER FINDING TFP

    11??

    I think that is too high. You should be in the 3 -7 range for Chlorine. Your CYA is also high unless you are running an SWG. CYA should be down around 30 - 50.

    What are your other test results?

    Re: A FEW MORE PICTURES OF MY POOL AFTER FINDING TFP

    Yes...I have to keep my chlorine between 6 and 11 because of my CYA being so high. When I opened my CYA was at 184 and I had to drain half the water. I still need to drain more water to get it down...about 38%more but I use well water and my pump is ancient. So I am running a higher FC level for that reason. All of my other test results are perfect. I am testing with TF-100.

    Re: A FEW MORE PICTURES OF MY POOL AFTER FINDING TFP

    I would say that if you think your water is looking less sparkly, trust your eyes. This may just be my experience, but when I recently bought the magnetic stirrer thing, it had my FC at a full ppm less than I was getting when manually swirling on the FC test. I had always run my FC on the high side, and am grateful I had if in fact I thought it was 1 ppm higher than it really was. Couple that with the fairly wide margin of error on the CYA test and I'd say running a little high would cause no harm and potentially ward off problems. Of course, this is just my two cents and you should let the experts (I'm not) weigh in.
    POOL: Intex ultra new in 2014 (32 x 16 x 52) (seasonal; on concrete pad covered with 1.5" extruded or whatever foam insulation sheets - ugly, but comfy); added a through-wall skimmer; I add salt for feel. EQUIPMENT: Pentair SuperFlo pump (1HP, 2SPD); Pentair cartridge filter (200 sq. ft); Pentair MasterTemp natural gas heater (400,000 btu) Climate/Location: Eastern Nebraska
