    Thank you for the TFPC method

    This is what I woke up to this morning. Pool is near my bedroom window and the kids/parents went swimming way early.

    In a thick spanish accent
    "Oh my gawd, this water is so clear and it even sparkles"

    They tried to complement me but I stated it was due to troublefreepool.
    Thank you to everyone who helps others and shares their knowledge. The few questions I have asked were answered quickly and honestly. The search function is my best friend. That has answered most, if not all of my questions.

    To anyone who thinks it cant be done, this is my experience. I was pool schooled to the max and battled algae on the regular. Through this site found out my cya was sky high. Did a few drain and refills to achieve a 40 cya. Got my tf100 kit. Got my pool balanced according to the chlorine/cya chart and vinyl recommended levels. Use poolmath to keep it all in specs. Added borates. Installed a stenner pump so I don't have to manually add chlorine.

    And now all I get is compliments with a few minutes of testing daily. It is truly a trouble free pool now.

    So, thank you to

    Awesome. It's amazing what a truly balanced pool looks like. Mine looks like it is virtually empty with the pump off, and shimmers like diamonds in the sun with the pump running. Enjoy the sparklypoolitis.

    Welcome to the forum, and thanks for the nice words. Mostly, congrats to you for taking control of your own pool, and doing it as it should be done.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
