I'm sure this type of message has been posted before, but I just had to say, I have now officially become a " water snob." It started years ago when I went to Bermuda with my family, and actually got to swim in nice, clear water. I couldn't go in the water on the Delaware or Jersey shores after that. If I can't see my feet, I ain't goin' in. I thought pools were great - also nice clear water.
Or so I thought. Just came back from vacation, and I couldn't bring myself to do more than "rinse off" in the pools there. My water is so clear and sparkly, and these were, well, a tad cloudy and smelled of chlorine to high heaven. Never bothered me before. Came back to my pool and just finished tweaking the water chemistry and vacuuming. Going to spend some time in it tonight. Ahhhhh!!!!
