I've used so much information on this site for 3 years now, have made a few posts, but must admit I haven't gone full-bore until this weekend. I have been depending on pool store tests for 3 years, and am getting tired of it. Finally ordered my TF-100 yesterday, got excited, and went and picked up 12 gallons of Aldi bleach, just to prepare myself.
I have been dealing with chlorine demand for a couple weeks now, and tired of buying expensive shock and tabs. In the meantime, I've gotten a case of water mold (really gross to look at), and figured it's time to hit it HARD with some bleach, lest the kids morph into alien beings because of substandard water balancing.
So, I guess I can say now that I'm almost a true BBB'r, and ready to cut loose of the pool store, even though they're good folks.
Thanks Duraleigh, for what I anticipate to be an excellent product, that will allow me to save time, and of course, gas money for the trips to the pool store!
