    Flip-Plop?

    Saw this at Ace Hardware last night.

    Flip Plop

    Any thoughts? I'm just finishing construction, so I haven't actually started the TFPC method, although that's what I had been planning. I am tempted by this as it does sound extremely simple, although reading the manual shows it's a little more involved than at first glance.

    Just interested as to whether this is a new idea, or just a twist on an old one...

    Another magic mineral system. Making the same you can use less chlorine claims.

    Stick with liquid chlorine.

    Re: Flip-Plop?

    all these marketing offices are doing great things FOR THE COMPANIES and bilking millions out of unsuspecting people that dont know any better... They even say on the front page you still have to use chlorine and right under that they say that buying this product and chlorine it will save you money??? I wonder how buying 2 products will save money?? and the long run they sell metal sequestrants to get the metels out of the water, for a low low price :")

    The MSDS just lists 96% Trichlor and 4% Dichlor ... although the ad language sure does make it sound like there are metals in it.

    Keep reading. That's for the Chlorine part,
    CALCIUM CARBONATE and Silver Chloride in the other part.
