Since last summer, I've been all in on the TFPC way of doing things. This year my pool looks great so far. There's only one problem. I can't stand to hear others talk about pool care now. I live in a neighborhood with several pools and several people I work with also have pools. I hear them talking about how they do their pools and I just want to stop them and fill them in on the secret. The problem is that they think what I'm doing is nuts. They've all been sucked in by the pool store and won't even consider what I talk about. I know there will come a time when CYA will be an issue and they may just start listening to me. Right now it's mineral packs, chlorine pucks, algaecide and test strips. If they only knew. I'd love to get some water samples of their pools and test them.
