    Algae Defeated!!!

    This is my second year with a pool... The first year after winter coverage, we got the pool up and running easily. This year, however, we had slightly green water and it just got worse over the past 3 weeks. After about $300 in chemicals and the local pool supply telling us to drain the pool as there was NOTHING we could do (We're in South Texas under stage II water restrictions) we found this site.

    We got all levels where they were supposed to be, then dumped in 12 "cheap" gallons of bleach (thanks Costco)... BLUE WATER !!!

    This Site ROCKS !!!

    Thank you guys so much!!!

    I'll be reading and learning from this site for quite a while!

    Have a great "Swimming" weekend everyone!
