    Now tell us how long that took, and how long before you bought your own test kit. This thread will be useful to convince doubters in the future!

    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!

    I would say within a matter of weeks things were looking much better. I used the pool store for maybe one week for sample testing and that was only because my test kit was being shipped to me

    I still love how people look at me with such shock when I tell them a simpler way! It's priceless and honestly, you couldn't pay me to swim in their cess pools.

    I would swim in yours though! When can I come over and um... can I bring my puppies and hubby? I have to make sure the water is as perfect as it looks!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
