    I've defeated the big green Monster! PICTURES!

    May 30 Day 1 Yuck!

    June 3rd

    June 5th



    June 22.

    July 9th Shallow end by steps



    Not the reflection of the clouds but the white spot in center of photo is a sock thats in the deep end 8ft down. It dropped in there yesterday when I added cya... so I am sooooo close!!

    3 days later.. my cleaner in the deep end.


    I am so so close..that I'm hanging up my towel and calling it a day.. or 5 weeks in my case!. I've passed OCLT.. cc's are .05 and I'm nearly clear! Lastly, my oodles and oodles of gallons of Chlorine (84)! Stacked up in cases. and then my grandson knocking them all over!



    My Grand baby and I are going out to swim! Thank you everyone!!!

    And it can stay that way the rest of the summer! Don't you wish you'd found this place last year?

    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!
