    Addicted to TFPC

    I think I may have a problem! Ever since I found TFPC, I've been addicted to getting my water perfect. So much so that I've purchased just about everything I could ever use from TFKits. Not pictured is the pressure gauge I also got from them. Anyone else just love playing mad scientist like me?!?!

    Only thing I am missing from that picture is the SampleSizer

    My IQ level shoots-up every time I grab the test kit in front of my family. I have them all fooled.

    Re: Addicted to TFPC

    I am the same way. I am on top of my chems, and I hate having even a few leaf fragments on the bottom of my pool. Very jealous of that SampleSizer right there. Think I'm gonna be needing one soon myself...

    This website is like getting your PHD in anything related to pools. I moved into a house with a massive complicated pool system and am figuring things out bit by bit. Tremendous source of info here!

    I love the sample sizer. Can get perfect samples with your eyes closed. I was terrible at obtaining proper samples before it!

    Pool care is hard work and I need to spend a lot of time in the pool house getting things right!

    At last, Master Pool Expert JohnT has shared his secret. I always wondered why he likes to test 5-6 times a day.

    Not sure, I've had it for a long time. The brand is Plano though. I'm pretty sure if you look on amazon/walmart/target/sports store you can find one with an identical or better layout.
