    I used to go to the same pool party every year growing up and the owners said there was a chemical in the pool that made pee turn purple. I think I read a year or so back that this was just something people said to scare kids, but it probably kept most of us from doing it

    The Ocean is still fair game, right?

    We haven't had rain forever until recently, are afraid to use the well to fill, and water delivery was expensive. How do you think we filled up the pool? It only took $1000 worth of Clorox to get it cleaned up

    Rain is overrated. Pee is much warmer :~}
    Where kids swim in 54 degree water, turn blue, and giggle happily cuz they got a POOL!
    Year 3 BBB -15' x 48" Intex Metal Frame - Was using (2) 1000gph Intex cartridge filters (see Full time pumping Intex). 2012, converted to 1600gph and sand filter+SWG = Sand filter love affair!
    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.
