    Is this normal?

    I had my first nightmare last night....I went to show our friends our pool and the water was disgusting murky brown......Then I woke up.....

    Is this normal for a BBBer? Are there more nightmares to follow?

    Yes, it's the beginning stages of SparklyPoolItis a.k.a. Pooliosis.

    It's normal and most seasoned TFP members have them from time to time. A cold drink is the cure.

    Too funny

    When you start taking your test kit with you on business trips or to other pools, you might think about signing up for the meetings with the rest of us

    The best part is you wake up to a clean sparkely pool, instead of dreaming about one and waking up to a swamp!!!

    So does that mean I'm not the only one who's spouse refers to them as "Crazy Pool Guy"? I pointed out that Crazy Pool Guy leads to sparkly clean pools, but I still have a new name.

    It's that uncontrollable urge to take a peek into total strangers pools and offer to help them get it all cleaned up and sparkly...

    There's a pool down the street that's still winterized. I keep having to squelch the urge to knock on the door and ask if I can open it for them....

    Wear the name with pride. Not only am I called that around my house and around my neighborhood, I've been called that professionally!

    And you know it's REALLY bad when you play around on Google Earth and spot a green pool in someone's yard and zero in it to find out where they live and .... well, you know the rest! :P

    You don't know the half of it...No longer will you be able to go to water parks, public pools or hotel pools...because deep down in places you don't want to talk about you know know that the water quality there will never beat the water quality of your pool. I spent all day yesterday cleaning and preping my pool because FPM is coming to our house for 4th of July parade and cookout and I want her to be proud of me! I don't want her to say beave you're pool is a mess. That is my worst nightmare I am a little miffed, the forcast has changed and it is only supposed to be in the low 70s. All my work shot in the rear!

    Have a great 4th of July everyone!!!
