    Welcome!

    You can become our expert on windblown dust, since you're from Victorville.

    A word of advice: unless you just filled your pool, your Calcium levels will be outside the recommended levels. Just accept it. It is possible to keep things balanced with CH up to about 800 without too much effort. Above 1000 CH, it's next to impossible.

    If you have any lawn, use pool water to irrigate and refill the pool with fresh. That keeps the CH down. You'll lose some stabilizer, too, but that will buy you some elbow room to use pucks if you leave town for a few days. And if what I wrote after the dust makes no sense, don;t worry. It will soon enough.

    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!
