    Green on water jets

    No, I do not have one that can bring it to me. Things is IF the cya is correct and on the correct level, is the forming of alge on water jets with low to none CH levels for 3 days normal ? Chlorine levels go down day by day, we have a lot of sun here.

    DIY Stirrer

    You could buy an already made plastic stirrer thingys from a store. What I did was just look around the house and find a small magnet. Then I set them on the table and poured hot glue (hot glue gun) all over it. Then just cut around it to make it like a pill. And yes it is a computer fan with...

    Safety Bracelets for Kids. Do They Work?

    You could also get a simple cheap IP camera. Watch pool over phone and know who is in or not. But still, having kids is a responsibility and you have to be there when they are inside to matter what and no matter how good of a swimmers they are.
