    Having a Trouble Free pool could be dangerous...for me!

    So now that the palms are trimmed, I believe I have a truly TFP! So much so that I didn't even test it yesterday...I just dumped the "normal" amount of chlorine for my pool last night and walked away. Go ahead, beat me up for that..I deserve it!

    In the beginning I was so paranoid I would check 3x a day! I hope I don't slip into getting lazy now that it's so easy. I know it can get away from you in a hurry.

    Came home at noon, brushed the sides and steps, vac'd and did a full test. Everything was right in line, FC at 6, 0 CC, pH 7.4.

    Scary huh?!

    Oh, and the obligatory pic!:

    You are normal. It gets to where you know what the pool needs before you test. Just don't neglect to test completely.

    I know what you mean though. I can see how it would be easy to get lazy once you have it dialed in.

    That's not really dangerous - we call it 'comfortable'.

    Beautiful water! Bravo!

    If you'd shown us that image the first time I would not have wondered if the water feature shelf was a spa! lol, it's very apparent that it's not a spa now.

    Next scary step for you will be not measuring bleach... hehe... pouring it like a bartender counting shots :~}
    Where kids swim in 54 degree water, turn blue, and giggle happily cuz they got a POOL!

    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.
