    Saying Hello, and thank you!

    New here, not new to pools. Have been slowly working our way through the intex sizes while I work on convincing everyone else we need a more permanent solution. (I think I am almost there!) This year, before setting up I decided to go looking for a solution to the ever popular "mid-summer haze" and found my way here. Oh my goodness! What a difference. We haven't even been in the pool yet (well, my daughter has, enjoyed the cozy 56 degrees for nearly 30 minutes then promptly volunteered to wash dishes because that water was warm! I may have to try this tactic again.) and I keep calling everyone who stops by to come look at my pretty water! It is that much of a difference already.

    Thank you for that! I always knew there had to be a better way a more effective way, a way to get JUST the chemicals needed without all the extra ****.

    I do have to confess I do not have a real test kit yet and won't have for a while for a couple reasons. The first being I live in Canada and they are a bit more difficult to come by ( already bookmarked). The second reason is ... I am actually a little embarrassed to admit this one ... I thought I would help my mom out (disability pension) and pay a bit on her cell phone, only I accidentally added an extra zero to the total ... oops! On the upside she won't have to pay anything on her bill for the next year (You're welcome mom!), downside I am now a lot short on cash for a bit! I promise though, I have a pretty good handle on what is going on in my pool, exact measurements on everything going in, checked with the pool calculator and I know how to add distilled water to a sample to get higher readings with my pseudo-kit until I can get a real one.

    Very much looking forward to a TFP from here on out!

    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!

    Hello and welcome to the forum

    It is obvious that you have "done time" in Pool School and on the board.

    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.
