    TFP success testimony

    About three and a half weeks ago, my wife started hounding me about getting the pool opened at the house we are about to close on and move to. The 16x32' above ground pool had been neglected and sitting untouched for two years. I did what I usually do, and started looking for answers on the internet. I found TFP and began reading immediately, becoming interested in the chemistry of it. I posted "Another first timer..." After many hours of reading, head scratching, testing, netting, skimming, vacuuming, brushing, retesting, and around $100 later, here I am. I want to thank all the folks here for the success I've had. Poolmath is amazing and the knowledge of some of the moderators here is invaluable. The attached photos were taken April 19th and then today. Thanks so much!

    I am planning to power wash, bleach and then coat the pool deck this summer. We haven't made a decision on what to use, but likely some type of textured waterproof coating.

    Thanks!

    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.
