    My pool, thank you TFP!

    I was just cleaning some stray leaves and tree junk and marveling at how clear the pool looks. I could even see the two spiders in the deep end that needed removed Ten days ago I was ready to throw in the towel on this pool and now look at it! Thanks for all your replies and help as I learn the TFP way.

    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!

    You did the work, so give yourself a pat on the back.

    It really is easy, just a bit overwhelming at first. Once you "get it", pool care is really less work than mowing the yard that used to be there.
