Thread: How to really test your pool water!

    How to really test your pool water!

    Simply toss a coin in.

    Can you read it?

    If you can, your water passed the test!

    Yes, I need to vacuum.
    I do the detail cleaning in the water. It's easier. But it's tooooo cold to get in the water right now.

    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!

    The coin is in 4 feet of water, sitting on a wrinkle.
