Folks i can guarantee you, that if you listen and follow through with the advice and tips found here you will be happy pool owners. I was fortunate enough to find this place in early May and my pool has NEVER looked better nor have I ever spent so little money or time fretting over my water. This is especially true over the past years when i have gone on my annual fishing trip to NL. Usually i would have stocked my shed with 40-60 Liters of liquid chlorine and all the other garbage the pool shop told me i needed because I didn't want a panic call from my wife that the pool was turning green.
Well-I have just returned from 14 days away and the pool is in as agood a shape as it was when I left. My wife merely checked the CL and PH every day and everything held as it should. When I did a complete run of tests last night with the kit i purchased here as recommended by everyone , my water was PERFECT in every sense.
I know how it is to get frustrated and the fear we have of posting too much, questioning the advise, feeling dumb because we cannot quite grasp it all, and having the patience to follow through with the advise given here, but it will pay off in spades for you. You can see my first ramblings here when I was in the same state many of you first time posters are in:
CHEERS AGAIN to all of you who take of your time to help us all become better and happier pool owners.You are wonderful people.
Cheers to you all
