    hello from wisconsin

    Hi all,
    Just wanted to say hi. The wife and I are kicking around the idea behind a pool and I'm here to soak up some information before I start to soak up some sun by our pool!

    What is possible? That the Lions have fans? I think not

    It is in the water...somehow it injects the purple and some sort of pacifying elixir that allows you to cheer for a team that, deep down in your purple blood, you know will never win a superbowl and you are somehow okay with that

    Hi dproft, and welcome to the forum

    You've come to the right place
    TFP Moderator TF100 Test Kit TF100 TestKit YouTube Channel PoolMath
    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
