    TF-100 and Speedstir

    Very excited for that brown delivery truck to swing by my house with a little package for me today! Been chomping' at the bit to get some accurate test levels.....can barely contain myself......doesn't seem normal now, does it? LOL. Told my DH the other day that I was going to be a chemist before this was all over!
    Pool grand opening Sept 2010. 100% sun exposure. Beach entry with fountain, IG gunite pool, approx 11,000g. Hayward HK sand filter. Intelliflow VS 350 pump w/ max flow rate 160 gpm. Dolphin (cordless) M5 Liberty pool cleaner. The pool has waterfall at one end with a tanning ledge and a spa at the other end that has a spillway into the pool and there is a water shear falling from the pool equip wall into the spa. DH did a beautiful job of designing it himself!

    I'll predict the next thing: you'll buy more vials and stirbars so you can run all your tests before washing the dishes.

    pssst: Taylor wants a lot for the stirbars. Check eBay. 8mm*25mm
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    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!

    Yup, it can be an addictive sort of thing, something to take pride in.
    It's also nice to know that YOU have proof that your family's well being is looked after and they are swimming in clean water, versus taking someone else's word for it and letting them swim in filthy water.

    You may just find that you can't swim in other peoples pools though, if you know they don't look after the water properly...I can't be the only one like that

    You aren't the only one. Last yr we went to a pool party with a cloudy pool. Everyone else was jumping in. DH and I just chatted with ppl in the shade saying "oh, we just don't feel like swimming today" even though it was 100 degrees Worst part was same guests came to our house 2 days later and all I could imagine was all the "stuff" piggy backing into my nice clean pool on the swimsuits.

    Don't matter, since your pool is properly maintained, anything that was introduced was killed probably instantly! Ah the joys of a trouble-free pool

    I'll swim in cloudy water, but when people ask why I won't get my hair wet or go underwater, I just say I don't want chlorine smell in my hair. lol

    Got it! Love it!
    Question, when it says to mix and add dros one by one and mix...is it ok to just leave the Speedstir on the entire time u drop or do u really drop, stir, stop stir, drop, stir...blah blah. Does it matter is my real question.

    Leave the stirring on ... that is one of the advantages of having it.

    Sorta what I thought and did, but just wanted to double check in case it skewed the results at all. Thank you much! (as my 23 month old would say)
