    Green to Clean

    I thought the board might like to see another success story. I have been a member since 07. Using this site I never had issues until this year when my cover sank. I had a real mess but the information here, 3 weeks of POP and $80 in chemicals - I'm swimming now.
    Thank you.

    The pics are from 5/7, 5/14, and 5/29.

    Wow! That's awesome!!! Great job!

    I have to admit, before I found this site, I would have thought a pool like that was not salvageable.

    Ha, I just read a post below, I did not know there was a product called 'Green to Clean'. I did NOT use it to clear my pool. 12% Bleach, 3 lbs of CYA, about 15 backwashes and elbow grease did the trick.

    Nice work, Brian. You are a true BBB'r in that you used the knowledge you have gained and some testing and chlorine and will have a sparkling pool the rest of the summer.

    What I am most impressed by is the fact that it only cost you $80!!! My pool is about the same size as yours, was not quite as green, and over the past week I have spent about $136. 2 25lb bags of DE. 15lbs of granular shock. 16 gallons of liquid shock.

    Looks great!

    That could be why Lisa. It sounds like you are buying pool store products instead of grocery store items. I will say that when I had to shock my pool hard, I did buy Cal Hypo from the pool store because it would have taken far too many bottles of Clorox to get my pool to shock level and hold it there, plus I was low on calcium hardness anyway.

    I should also thank Duraleigh (Dave at TFTestKits) for their fast delivery and reasonable prices. You guys rock. (Even when I'm tired and order the wrong stuff. )
