    Smile Just opened in Kentucky!

    First time opening after using BBB! To say I'm happy is an understatement. This picture was taken right after I pulled my cover off this past Saturday!

    You should have warned us and I would have put on my sunglasses before looking! Nice work!

    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.

    "It ain't braggin' if you can do it!" Actually, testimonials like yours give others inspiration and reinforcement.

    That is AWESOME! What closing/winter procedures did you go through to get that? I'll have to read up on closing procedures before winter. Way to go!

    All I did was maintained my pool all summer using the BBB method. I closed late, brought my pool to shock level, drained water to below skimmer, put on my cover, and opened early this year. That's it!

    There is no reason, since you're here, that you can't open to this next year! Keep reading POOL SCHOOL!

    Congrats Iwilk... I get all giddy doing it every year too! I've been at it for 7 years now!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
