    Hello from Mizu

    Hello everyone! My name is David and I am in the big bad pool store business. This is my first year working in the industry, and boy am I glad I found this site sooner rather than later! I have realized just how much misinformation is given by so-called "experts" who are just salesmen in disguise, and have learned enormous amounts thanks to the real experts here! You can look forward to me bothering you lots during the off-season winter.

    Edit: By the way, Mizu means water in Japanese! Preferably clean water.

    Thanks for the encouragement Chem Geek! I try to cut through the bunk of sales pitches and bring true chemistry, plain and simple, to my customers. I actually attend seminars and speak with product reps frequently, so I have the "inside edge" on many of these products you never want in your pool. I could go on and on about EZPool. Don't ever put that in your pool.

    Actually, I've been reading this forum for a while so I've already been able to help pierce the veil of pool store ignorance! I had a poor customer who just could not beat a pink algae problem even though it was a chlorine pool. I didn't realize it at the time, but it was because her CYA was 180ppm. Yes, 180! And my manager just had her dump in pound after pound of dichlor!! Next season I'm going to recommend a hearty refill to get that CYA down.
