    Hello from East TN

    I Just wanted to say Hi to everyone one here. This is a great site with loads of information. I have recently uncovered my pond for the 3rd spring in a row. I am tired of dealing with the pool stores and all of their advice on what chemicals I need to buy from them to kill the algae. So far, I am 24 hrs into treating my pool, and I can already see the difference between the information I got here and from all those other chemicals I was told would be the solution. Not to mention about $200 cheaper too.

    Thanks to All

    welcome - was there a great since of accomplishment knowing you did it without their help? You can lie to your spouse and tell him/her you just figured this all out on your own - we won't tell Welcome!

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
