    Thanks to this site. My troubles are free! See Inside!!!

    OK I fought and fought with my local pool place and 3 different pool maintenance companies. I will spare you the details on them but basically, none of them could get my pool right. Thanks to this site, especially the pool school, Sams Club(for bleach) and the TF-100 kit I turned my pool from this...








    to this!!!!!







    The first set of images transpired over 3 weeks!!!!! the last picture is where I started. I had copper issues and WAY too much CYA!! I mean WAY too much like upwards of 200 lol. Stupid pool place should have told me. Drain the pool half way and put in new water. That was the trick. I wasn't putting enough chlorine to shock it. Simple as that.

    I donated today and will wear my lifetime support badge proudly!! I fired my pool cleaners and haven't been back to the pool place since. All I need is Sams Club and my TF-100.


    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Welcome to TFP!

    What an introduction! Well done!

    Pool School helps me maintain my 13,500G 24' x 48" ASP with Sand Filtration using a TF100 Test Kit and Pool Calculator.
    Remember, the Shock Process should be followed until : 1. CC is less than 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT shows a loss of 1.0 ppm or less and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    Seriously. If you can't fix your pool using the pool school, you didn't even read it. I don't think it could be explained any easier.

    Before this site I wanted to fill my pool in with concrete lol.
