    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.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Your water is really amazing looking! Are you using borates?

    Ummmmm, I'm not the most well versed when it comes to pool lingo. What are Borates?? Assuming some kind of chemical....right?? If so, No. I basically only use a few hundred pounds of salt to open up the pool. Along with 2 gallons of liquid shock. Once pool is up and running, I rarely if EVER have to adjust the chemical balance. I only use the strips to test my water. I know, blasphemy...lol. But, my train of thought is....if my pool water looks crystal clear, and my strips say the chemicals are exactly or close to being right.....why screw with it.

    Great looking pool. The waterfalls are a nice touch.

    I like your method- keep it simple...if it ain't broke...

    Nice looking pool.

    I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who has named my polaris. Mine is named Rosie (after the robot maid from the Jetsons).

    Herbie short for Herbert Hoover....Hoover being the vacuum cleaner. LOL Hey, that's what happens when you let a 11 & 7 (at the time) year old kid name your pool vacuum.

    Thank you for the compliments!!!! I wonder how many others name their vacuums. My neighbor calls his "Norman". Never asked why. Maybe we can start a poll...

    BTW, nice pool!!
