    I have maintained my pool for the last 16 years including opening and closing. This is first year using the TFPC method. So far been its working perfect. I wish I had come across this forum years ago. Anyway I bought the TF-100 kit and it is my best buddy. Couple months ago when I was a "newbie" at the TFPC method ,my PH was a bit high so I thought I would pickup some borax and lower it!!! I know your smiling , needless to say I picked up some muriatic acid soon after. Guess that's the last time I make that mistake. PH is now back around 7.5 after that blunder. So Thanks to all the info on this forum. Look forward to learing more in future.

    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!
