    Guess what I got?!!!

    I nice lime green pool!

    Eh... I guess it could be worse! I could go to the pool store and have my pockets hosed out!



    Oh... for the record, I just started the pump so hold your pool covers down til it circulates for awhile. I'm guessing there is NO FC!

    You've found the BEST place to help clear that swamp

    You could read Pool School to find out how to deal with your green monster but, PMing one of the Mods is your best bet

    Casey, why be embarrrassed! You're not the only one

    Because of illness, we were not able to take care of our pool (which stays open year around) for several months.

    It became a nice lime green and had some junk in the bottom.

    Scooping, vac'ing & shocking with bleach had it blue in two days.

    BBB-er's don't panic when our pools take a turn. We just BBB it the TFP way

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    I slept in this morning so I don't have over night numbers. Here she is the next morning...



    I'll be sweeping, brushing and shocking again.

    This won't take long at all.

    Re: Guess what I got?!!!

    It's amazing to see the night and day difference BBB can have on a pool.

    Pics after sweeping taken a few minutes ago.




    She's not done yet. I still have to do an over night test which I'll perform tomorrow morning.

    Oh yeah, my numbers are good.

    FC is sitting pretty at 15 ppm. Will get up at 5:30 and check her out first thing in the morning.

    Just took these night time pics... Date is obviously wrong! I'll fix it later.

    Re: Guess what I got?!!!

    15 ppm this am before sunrise. CC .5 all other numbers are in range. Well, the pH is high but that's cuz it's being shocked.

    Take my word for it!
