    Thank you to all those who unknowingly helped me!

    I've been lurking around TFP since 2008 when my family and I moved into our current house. The previous owner had neglected the pool and left us with a nice swamp going in. I hit the net and quickly found this fantastic website, began reading, and reading, and was able to clear it without getting pool stored.


    After a few days of shocking.


    A day or two later.


    After a good vacuuming and filter cleaning.

    Growing up with a pool I knew the basics but TFP has been such a incredible source of knowledge in helping me maintain a sparkling clean pool. I just wanted to say thank you to all of those that contribute and help others like me!

    Most recently we had a new liner installed after the old one ripped right above the water line. So it looks a little different now, yet still beautiful thanks to the BBB method.


    Chalk up another success for the BBB method!

    Wow, nice!
    I couldn't hold back at all, I looked and read for 2 months and pulled the trigger on the TF-100XL kit before I even signed up here.
    I got very good results with the TFP way.
    Now I chime in and help back.

    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!

    Ha! It seemed like all of my questions had already been asked and answered before. Plus I'm a bit shy.
