First, thanks so much for maintaining such an informative and helpful website.
I have been a pool owner for a little over 3 years now. I formerly used a mom & pop pool store, and I was happy enough with it until it was sold to another owner. After that I tried a franchise pool store.
With their help, I have had CYA levels so high that I have had to drain and replace water in my pool, as well as deal with 2 algae episodes, the last of which was finally resolved with help from an Ace Hardware store. I didn't understand what was going on.
Then I found this site. I will be taking caring of my own pool from now on. Thank you for the tools.
