    A BIG thank you!

    Hi guys! I haven't posted for a while, but I wonted to stop by and give a big thank you to everyone who has shard their knowledge on this board. Thanks to TFP, I have been algae-free and sparkling clear all summer long! I bought the TFP kit at the beginning of the season, and I have made it a habit to spend just a few minutes testing my water every day. My time cleaning the filter has decreased and I've only had to bust out the PoolBuster vacuum 3 times to clean up little bits of debris. I've had to maintain CL levels of about 8-10 ppm because of my higher CYA, but I will know better about that for next season.

    I can't stress enough how important it is to just spend a few minutes a day to test the waters. I can't remember who has that posted in their signature off the top of my head, but it really inspired me to take charge, and I really feel I'm reaping some benefits finally. In previous seasons, I had struggled with algae at some point or another. I feel like I'm really starting to get a handle on this.

    Anyway, thanks again! And for those who are new to BBB, hang in there! It's still a learning process for me, but trust me, it is so worth it when things finally start going right.

    Hi Jennifer! I'm happy to hear it all worked out for you and you've enjoyed a sparkling pool all summer.
    I bet you can do the tests in your sleep, now. Regular testing and dosing does pay off.

    Congratulations to you on becoming an expert.

    Nice work, Jennifer. Perhaps not quite as much as you, but it's very rewarding for all of us on the forum to hear of your success.

    This stuff does work.

    I must be overly obsessive (and have been called anal retentive when it comes to some matters) as I pretty much test daily

    Congratulations Jennifer. Welcome to the world of the "Trouble Free Pool".


    P.S. I believe Carl D is the signature you are referring---"5 minutes a day"
