    New pool owner, found TFP about 2 months in

    What's up everybody?!

    Sooooooo, happy I found this site. Started out hitting up Leslie's which is within walking distance and OBVIOUSLY nothing worked. I started using the BBB method and instantly saw results. Once the algae was dead, I added DE to my filter and honestly within minutes I could start seeing the bottom. I will post pics and updates soon. Thanks again!

    But...but...but... what about Leslie's Algae-Free guarantee? That's a joke.

    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!

    Just right after you buy this...and if you use that, you'll need this. After that bring back a sample then we will tell you what you need to buy next.
