    Hi and thank you!!

    Hi all,

    i've been a long time lurker here at TFP and just wanted to send out a big THANK YOU to you guys. the vast wealth of knowledge here at TFP has saved me from many headaches and from spending way too much of my hard earned dollars at the pool store. the last time i was there the guy actually got mad at me because i knew more about pool water chemistry than he did and he was shocked that anyone would put borax, baking soda and bleach in thier pool

    Thanks again to all the fine folks here at TFP! you guys are the BEST!!


    ps. Here's a couple of pics and my numbers three days after opening

    FC- 9 coming down from shock level
    CC- 0
    PH- 7.2 just added 2 1/2 lbs borax will retest in an hour or so
    TA- 90
    CH- 170
    CYA- 15 added 2 lbs of stabilizer will retest in a few days
