    More Proof BBB Works

    This was a guys rent house. The pool guy just up and moved without telling him. The owner said the pool had only been neglected for a month, but I find that hard to believe. I told him I'd clean it up if he bought the chemicals - and PAID me. This is what it looked like when I got there:



    And this is what it looked like 4 hours later:




    Nothing but 10% concentrated bleach and a lot of scrubbing.

    Great job! Oh, I can believe it went that bad in one month. If conditions are right, it can go downhill very quickly.

    Hey, Tag,

    That's very, very nice work.

    Were you at the old PF? I don't remember your username and your results would indicate a seasoned pro.

    You're makin' us old guys look like rookies.

    Your post reinforces my mantra.......... "Chlorine is the answer to clear your pool"

    I didn't post a lot but yeah I was a registered member of the old pool forum. I don't post a whole lot here (about what people should do with their pool), just because I know there are people here that are MUCH more knowledgeable than me. Maybe I'll chime in a little more..
