    Thanks! I'm a hero.

    Went to book club at a neighbor's recently. Noticed the huge iron stain on the bottom of her pool caused by the algaecide the pool store sold her. She told me about the bids she was getting for huge amounts to drain and acid wash. I came back next day with my test kit, showed her the TFP website and printed out the directions for the Ascorbic acid treatment. She ordered her own test kit and the ascorbic acid. Today she texted me a pic of her sparkling stain free pool! Woo hoo! I'm a superhero thanks to TFP.

    P.S. We tried the vitamin C test first. When she saw the stain disappear under the tablet I knew she was hooked.

    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!
