    It's pretty bad when...

    Your a pool guy, and you're so busy taken care of everyone else, that your own pool starts turning green...

    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.

    It also comes with lazy teenagers. This time, though, I am making them fix it while I watch with cold one in hand.

    side story... my daughter went on my route as my "chauffeur" - she's got her learners permit. So, I paid her to be my "Test&chem" while I did the cleaning...

    Here first attempt at pH adjustment (and, I warned her ahead of time...) was quite interesting... she got a good whiff of MA, and says to me, "this stuff is truly evil!".

    3 or 4 more times it took her before she got to really think about "wind direction".

    LOL!!!!! We've all been there, but it only took me once before I learned about wind direction!
