    keeping extra chlorine around...

    pool has been doing great since completing a SLAM about a month ago. been utilizing the SWCG and its been keeping my FC up and pretty stable. I had some empty 2.5g chlorine jugs and went to return them to the pool store last week to get my deposits back. decided to get one re-filled and keep around...just in case.

    well yesterday I was swimming with my 2 year old daughter when she made a face, pointed in the water and said "poop". learned right then and there that a swim diaper doesn't keep everything contained, as was evidenced by the growing brown cloud in the water

    got her out and cleaned up and threw in some chlorine to get the levels up to near SLAM just to be safe.

    anyway...lesson learned. Always have some spare chlorine around, even with the SWCG

    Yep. It's always a good idea to have some extra around for just that reason. If it gets old, use it in the washing machine.

    Ahhhh, the joys of parenthood. I have grandchildren now, so it starts all over again for me. Cute that she let you know though.
