    Big thanks to TFP

    Hello all, I am a proud owner of a 27' round crystal clear trouble free pool thanks only to this site. I only wish I would have found this site prior to purchasing my pool from a store, live and learn. Thankfully I did join prior to the install, which was a nightmare, so I have not stepped back into the PS since. I purchased my TF-100 kit about a month before install and checked a hotels pool to get some practice in. The install was BS, the store used a sub contractor that took care of there customers first. After many angry calls I finally got the pool in and up. They wanted to send a crew over at 6:30pm, after a long day of installs, to finish mine. I would not allow it and told them that my village does not allow any construction after 7pm. I have not posted prior to today because I Have found all my questions answerd just by using the search here. So thank you very much .

    Welcome to tfp, daa1275

    Other than the install hassles, it sound like you are getting off to a good start

    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.

    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!

    Great job on those stairs!

    Re: Big thanks to TFP

    We didn't pay attention to the entry stairs when we bought the pool. We did tell the salesperson that we needed sturdy stairs for our rather LARGE family, but the ones we got bent with a child on them. I called the PS and our wonderful sales person told us that they didn't have a more sturdy step unless we wanted to purchase a deck from them. I am not a carpenter at all. Thankfully Menards sells treated pre cut stringers or I would have failed. The water condition has been going good due to this site. My test today was
    FC 2.5
    PH 7.5
    CC 0
    CYA 40
    CH 110
    TA 230

    FC 2.5
    With 40 CYA, maintain FC between 3 and 7, and never below 3.

    I should have mentioned that I did bump the FC to 5.5 prior to swimming.
