    Guess who has a CRYSTAL CLEAR pool?

    I DO!!!!!!

    I would like to THANK you all for all the advice. Exactly one week ago I started my BBB journey. Only chemicals added were, Bleach, Muriatic Acid, and some CYA!

    I was vacuuming this morning, and if I did not know any better, I would not know I was standing in water!
    Only drawback, is now I can see the wrinkles in my liner.

    Too all my new friends, and smart pool people here and I hope you have beautiful weather this Memorial Day Weekend!
