    Passed the test!

    Been fighting a nasty algea infestation for a week now....finally passed the overnight FC test! Water is very cloudy but I think it will just take the filter time to clear it out. I am so happy to be winning this battle

    I hope you took before pictures so you can post before and after.

    Now stick around and help us convince people that a decent test kit, a lot of bleach, and a lot of patience are the only things that will clear a swamp!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
