Every year we help hundreds of people turn their pools from swamp to sparkling. Yes, it takes time. Maybe a few days, maybe a few weeks. Every pool is different. Every algae outbreak is different. We know its hot, you want to swim, the kids are nagging you to swim. Your chlorine is holding and you can see a couple of steps but its still a little murky. It looks sooo much better, surely its safe enough, right? WRONG!

Listen to how they describe what happened in the report. Two deadly mistakes occured at this party. One was allowing anyone, much less children, to swim in that murky mess. Two, did you catch it? NO ADULT SUPERVISION! The kids had to go inside to find an adult to pull the child out of the pool!
If you learn nothing else from TFP please learn this, never let kids swim without an adult poolside, and never let a child (or adult) swim in a pool when you can't see the bottom.
