    Aloha from Memphis

    I finally took the plunge and became a forum member after over a year of lurking.
    Voodoo_Pool is appropriate based on my experience with the local pool stores. Leslie's now knows not to question me, especially after buying a dozen bags of salt for my non-SWG pool and 8 gallons of MA for my Borate addition. They just roll their eyes. I've stopped patronizing another local pool store (don't recall their name) after the lady behind the counter almost had a heart-attack when she read my TDS and I explained that I added 2000ppm salt to my non-SWG pool. When she recovered, I also told her that I used CLOROX and 20 MULE TEAM...she fainted.
    Lots of sun, lots of clear water...should be a great swim season! Thanks, TFP!

    No curses...thank you. I just thought that "Voodoo" was appropriate since the local pool stores think I am doing something "mysterious" to my pool.

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D

    I must be doing something right if WASTE gave me such a great compliment. I am humbled...of course I had great teachers! Thanks to the "REGULARS".
