    Pool dye?

    I'm having a toga/pool party tonight for my birthday and I have some stuff called "party pool" to dye it dark blue. Seems festive. Is it going to mess up my chemicals or make it hard for me to take readings?

    Happy Birthday to all the birthday people today!

    Please let me know how you like the pool dye - I've been thinking about trying it myself.

    Thanks!

    So I added a bit too much dye I think......mose of my guests left with blue skin. But they had had enough to drink that they didn't care that much. It seemed like it was only people that were in the spa though, maybe it takes longer for it to filter through the spa? I dunno. But the pool looked very pretty!

    I'm glad your party was a great one! I definitely want to try pool dye but it will have to wait until next season. It's too cold to swim here, but we haven't closed the pool yet - it's too pretty to put that ugly cover over.
