    Thanks

    Hi y'all. I'm back after having a very successful pool season last year thanks to all the good people here.

    Opened the pool this year to a green cloudy mess (boy do I hate my loop -loc cover) and now its clear as crystal.

    Overdid the chlorine (oops) and now just waiting for it to get to normal limits and then it is just maintenance mode

    I just wanted to thank the people here for sharing their knowledge. To all you first timers I would say two things:

    Follow their advice, they know what they are talking about.
    Stick with the plan, it will work.

    I had some algae last year I just couldn't get rid of and came here frustrated. I got rid of the algae and the pool store! and am a very happy camper.

    Just replenished some test kit stuff to support the site.

    Have a great season everyone.

    Thanks for the great praise. And good job too you!

    Heck, you might want to even go a step further and press the Support button up at the top of the page. You get a cool badge and some nice perks, too. Have a great summer and feel free to help encourage some folks if you notice they need it.

    Now that you know how to do it, stick around and share that knowledge. Opening season is upon us and the forum will be overwhelmed with green pool posts. One doesn't need an expert or moderator badge to answer!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
