    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    No, they haven't shown up yet. And some probably won't, after all is said and done.

    Pretty typical, actually. Just had the opening rounds of what's going to become a big fight between me and the wife. I'm not ever going to waste any more time cleaning up the patio, the pool, and the house for her family. Nor will I ever again adjust my plans for them. And I'm feeling pretty confidant that the next time they try having a birthday party or whatever that I'll have other plans. Or a headache. Something.

    End vent.

    Sometimes, It's good to let it all hang out and I ain't talking bout yer feelings Richard!

    You must refuse to make some people happy just cuz you'll be a lot happier in doing so. I do it all the time. I do believe I could properly describe it as dropping F bombs everywhere.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
