    Salt is HIGH!!!!

    unless you dumped in ~500 lbs of salt that is unlikely to be accurate ( didnt actually do the pool math but it would be a LOT ) ok i couldnt stand it - pool math says to raise my pool to 8600 would take 914 more lbs of salt ...

    How to help people without sounding like a know-it-all??

    Its not just pools, its people, some are hard to convert to a proven better way. I would encourage him to read the site, or read the manual for the SWG. But at the end of the day pool companies depend on customers like him for the weekly maintenance income. Ive found it is really VERY easy...

    Switching to Salt - Nature2 Soft or AquaPure? Also question about comment from PB.

    I would stop trusting Puryear. They do what makes sense for them. ... But that's just MY experience. I didn't realize they were in south texas as well. We have aquapure and it works just fine. Not installed or maintained by Puryear.
