It's been a BUSY summer so far, but I wanted to give BBB another plug. My pool has been through a lot so far this season, and thanks to what I've learned here (and my TF100!) I've had NO trouble this season. I've been away for a few days at a time, I brought the water to shock level or just below and left the solar cover on. When I got home I just vacuumed whatever settled, and enjoyed warm, clear water. My PH & TA haven't gotten away from me like they used to in years past, I understand the relationship between CYA & FC levels, and how to manage them appropriately. Even a hurricane couldn't throw me off course, even if it did lower my CYA. Thanks to this site I knew what to expect from it and how to deal with it. If I had any spare cash I'd become a supporter, but times are tight right now. I figured this might be the next best thing.
Many thanks to the site owners, contributors, sponsors and posters!
