Thread: Not to toot my own horn but....

    Not to toot my own horn but....

    I had a major algae situation and took care of it all by myself! I have really gotten a hang of this pool care stuff since Guamguy has been on deployment, I see now why he says it's "relaxing". There is something cathartic about keeping your pool clean and nice for friends to enjoy.

    I just wanted you guys to know how helpful you've been, I haven't posted much, but I come here a lot to make sure I'm doing everything correctly. Thank you!

    Guamguy should be back before Christmas, so you will probably see him back on here, as I am sure I will have to relinquish my pool duties when he returns.

    That's several pieces of great news all rolled into one!

    Cleared a algae outbreak! Good work! (though I should admonish you for getting one in the first place)

    And the hubby'll be home for Christmas. That's the best news!

    Hmmm... if you were doing things right...wouldnt you NOT have a algae situation?? JUST KIDDING! i know it can happen out of nowhere and happen FAST! Your correct, you got rid of it and thats the hard part for homeowners.

    Yeah, I had pneumonia, and the kids were sick too, so I wasn't paying attention!!

    You may find that Guamguy has no problem with you continuing all the That'll be a win-win, yes? Good job on the algae & I'm sure he'll be very impressed with how you've handled it all. Good Luck to both of you!
