    First opening with TFP method - you guys rock!

    Attachment 38004Removed Elephant cover with a brown muck pond, after 3 bottles of $2 bleach and a box of Borax ($4), and a diesel fuel filter from McCann (2 for $6) I am on the mark and swimming in crystal clear water.

    NEVER go to the pool store for chemicals again!

    hi, your pool was brown? and only took 3 bottles of bleach? sounds like you just shocked it, which kills off some algae but it will come back. did you do a full SLAM??

    nice pool by the way!

    Nice to hear favorable comments. Nice looking pool you have there. Yeah, you have to expand on the fuel filter. I'm curious about that one! Creative avatar as well.

    It is a DYI Slimebag, there is a link for the piece and setup here (SlimeBag for 1/10 of the price, yes you can!!)

    I used to buy these from Slimebag for up to $75 a piece. For $6 is the exact same material and construction, works like a charm.

    It is a 14,000 gallon pool, so 3 gallons brough the FC to 15ppm, and it held for almost a week at +8ppm. The brown was basically pollen buds and crunched up leaves that got through the Elephant cover.
