    Day 11 I think! Not a care in the world, lets see your pool!

    So I go out and marvel how clean and clear my pool is now ( About day 6 it got really nice ), The testing is a breeze now. I have settled into consistent numbers and have a good feel for where my pool wants to be. I have no more pool stress, just happiness and content and if you follow all these great people to the promise land you can have that pool also! Oh its really fun to look at the deep end of your pool but it is so clear it only looks a few inches deep.

    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!

    I feel the same! Lol... I was at a cookout last weekend and explaining the BBB method to the homeowner (and IG poolowner). When I told her I put bleach in my pool, she said I should stop using bleach and buy chlorine... Lolol ...I tried to explain but it fell on deaf ears.

    My husband floating on his raft in the pool he loves but did not want! If someone took the pool down he would have a fit!!!



    The umbrellas I invested in. I can not be in the sun very long because I don't get burnt, I get scalded and blistered! I will be adding another umbrella this week!

    this site is the best. No more pool store for me. My pool is looking great, without wasting huge dollars at the pool store. Its amazing the stuff they try to sell you in there.

    I love the pool store, they sell floaties, cool lights, beer koozies, toys, but that's all I'll buy anymore.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Idea, TFP beer koozies? I'm in!!!

    Update, I have spent so much time reading pool school I never new there was a store. Orders going in tomorrow!!! Did I mention I'm OCD? Should I put it in my signature?
