    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D

    If you use too much of the BLUE Party Pool (a real product), you'll look like the Smurf Family for at least two weeks, before it washes off!

    I had to look up Blue Party Pool. Found it; but something I don't understand.




    An easy and inexpensive way to add sparkling blue color to your pool, anytime, in minutes and it lasts for days. Party Pool is an exciting product developed in 1985 in Phoenix, Arizona by a Pool Cleaning Company to add sparkling color to customers pools. Party Pool is people and pool safe, non-toxic, non-caustic and tried and proven in thousands of pools. An 8 oz. bottle will treat an average 20,000 gallon pool twice and it lasts for days. Party Pool adds a special touch for: Weekends at home, Homes for sale, Special events, Entertaining, Anniversaries, Pool Parties, Birthdays, Weddings, Holidays, BBQs, Romantic Evenings by the pool. Dont forget holiday weekends! A Quick and Easy way to Decorate your Pool!



    Forget it. I found where it comes in red and green also.





    I learn stuff on this site every day.

    Gee... I could have sworn the instruction said 8 oz per ten thousands gals of pool water. That’s why I poured in 3 bottles.

    Everyone would think we were using one of the local pool services instead of BBB!

    duraleigh (Dave)'s drunken, illegal, fighting elves might hear of it and want to move down here!

    It just goes against the blue, I mean the green ...I mean the grain!

    Green water in a pool is sad.

    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.
