So I have been using TFP and the BBB method for the past two years.
This morning, after a major storm, heavy rain and leaves blown all over ( insert short word for very hot place ending in ll) I went out to survey my pool. In the overcast morning light I COULDN'T SEE THE WATER LEVEL ON MY TILES.
Yep, with a pile of leaves in the deep end, scattered leaves through the pool, my water was so crystal clear I had to bend down to determine if my water had climbed above the top of the tile. My CC, even with a pile of leaves in the pool, was zero!
Now this is a major problem -- My pool is so clear I can't see the water level!! Ok I wear bifocals and a hearing aids --- but crystal clear -- after a storm?
I am a layed back guy--- I confess I an not a total true believer and check my water daily ---- heck -- I sometimes go a week allowing the Steiner pump to do its thing. And my pool is this crystal clear??? Maybe my wife has secretly hired a pool service?
Maybe we need to require TFP dye in pools for old guys like me.
