    I almost forgot this part!

    Please forgive my faux pas in failing to introduce myself. I almost forgot to do it.

    My name is Stephani. We live in Arkansas, and I am a new BBB convert. Since I asked a question before I remembered to introduce myself, I now have the opportunity to say, "thank you!" for all the wonderful help I have received. I love this place!

    Thank you, Jason! This has been an invaluable resource. If only I had known about it years ago...

    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.

    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.

    Re: I almost forgot this part!

    Thank you all so much! I have read posts by all of you several times. You guys are geniuses!

    I don't want to make another faux pas. I guess this is the best place to ask how to avoid that. I have an ongoing problem with my stained fg pool. Requesting help with that was my initial post. I started the AA treatment last night. With the results I got, I am not sure how to proceed. Do I ask that in my original post, or do I go to the AA treatment post and ask it there?

    If it's the same problem, keep it in one thread so people can read the whole history.
