    Crawfish, FC & Fun- Loads of Pics

    We had a big swim party last Saturday; 15 adults, about a dozen kids and 4 dogs. We cooked about 100lbs of crawfish and 10lbs shrimp. I think the pool water would have withstood the people /dog swim-load, but I知 afraid the 2lbs of crawfish I found IN THE POOL the next morning is what took it over the edge.
    I知 amazed how fast the water clouded and algae took hold! I even pretreated on Friday to get the FC up to 10ppm (my target was 5ppm). I can certainly see that I値l have to raise my target FC over the summer swim season. Anyway, it was a nice day of fun and after 3days @ shock level, the water this morning is again crystal clear. Thanks again to TFP-Pool School


    I think these are the guilty crawfish-culprits

    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.

    lol! Those crawfish are adorable (kids n dog)!

    I know when I would have a buncha kids over I would always bump the FC up. They would never fessed up to who would lower the FC! They'd just point fingers... lol I knew the dog would always exit the pool to pee and then jump back in! I'm going to miss my lil swimmer this year... RIP Casey!

    Great pics Prag!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Thanks. All my favorite things~Family, Friends, Food & Fun..Glad it was an easy fix to get chemistry back to normal. But, I tell ya, I did not expect to be using sooo much bleach to keep the pool levels right. ..I'm using about 1 gallon every 4 days.

    I certainly could have used some REAL eaters..most of them just picked and the "peelers" ended up peeling about 30lbs tails to freeze for later.
