    thank you, oh pool gurus !!!

    i just wanted to send out a heart-felt thanx to all you pool gurus that have helped me out this year!!! i was ready to knock the pool down with a sledge hammer a few weeks back, but y'all talked me off the ledge, gave me some great advice (skimmer sock, testing/balancing advice, the importance of "p.o.p.", etc...) and so..... this weekend I SAW THE BOTTOM OF MY POOL !!!! i tell ya, i almost felt like crying. i've been fighting with this pool since april and now i feel like i've got it under control. as soon as i saw the bottom (still a little hazy, but i CAN see the design in the liner) i thought of you guys & gals and just wanted to give y'all a big hug! you have one heck of a site here, and you're all so knowledgeable and take the time to help out rookies like me, and you're all so NICE about it. so anyway, i just wanted to tip my cap to y'all and say THANX FOR THE HELP, as i'm sure as the summer moves along, i'll be bugging you again. TFP ROCKS !!!

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Although, it is hard to believe someone does not have a digital camera these days.

    nope, no digital camera. no computer at my house either. i use the one at my work for any "computing" i need to do. no cell phone. no microwave oven. no t.v. i try to live "off the grid" as much as possible... however, i do have a toaster and several of those new-fangled "radios" everybody's talking about.
