    It's So Nice To Know What I'm Doing...

    Went to Ruidoso for a week for a much-needed vacation... but what to do with the pool!!!???

    No problem, due to the TFPC method, I had detailed records of my chlorine consumption, and an understanding of what levels I needed to maintain. I've been losing a maximum of 2 ppm FC a day lately, so I used Pool Math to figure out how much chlorine to add to maintain my target level, and when I got home, voila! Right on the money. Other than a ton of leaves and about 4" too much water in the pool because we had some torrential rains and winds while I was gone, it was ready to swim in when I got home. Which I did

    Knowing exactly what I needed to do to keep my pool safe and algae-free while I was gone - without increasing my CYA - was priceless. It's nice to know what you're doing.

    You could have stopped by the pool store and picked up some algecide and other potions that I'm sure they would have sold you. Oh wait, you need a floater, a bucket of tabs and a case of shock. Kidding
