    Never had water this clear

    After some earlier scale issues this year, I found TFP, and since my first "real" shock (as a process vs product), ongoing testing and proper balancing, I don't think my water has ever been this clear. Always found that any cloudiness shows up best at night with the pool lights on, so I figured I'd turn them on and have a look tonight. I think it looks really great and thought I'd share my success. The stripes in the deep end are the patterns cast from the pool light, which I'd never seen before.



    Thanks TFP!

    Looks great, but where did your water go?

    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.
