    Yeah, I just stopped in to pick up some o-ring lube.

    I saw a guy there with an $89 "z-pac" cartridge that puts metals in the water and a big $149 tub of pucks. I was so tempted to say something.

    I struggle sometimes between thinking "I should help them out." and "Where will I get parts when I need them fast if these suckers aren't supporting this store? "

    Here's a sign leading to a pool that probably follows the sign in that store....



    Turned out it was a salt water pool LOL....

    That's what I was thinking.

    I could totally see someone grabbing a bottle of each. Hmmm let's try pH up, that didn't work, maybe pH down....ok, that didn't work either...

    Always get a good laugh when I pick up my chlorine (bleach around here is only 4.25% liquid chlorine is 12%). there is always someone there getting there water tested and told they need at least $100 worth of chemicals. While I pay $5 for a good week and a half of chlorine. Makes me want to start my own store.
