    Thank you waterbear.

    Am I, as a newbie, overlooking the 'print' function on this forum?

    don't think we have one! Can you copy and paste into a word document, and print from there? (welcome to TFP!)

    "Shock" is a process, not a product!

    The forum itself doesn't have a print function but your browser does. Look in FILE/PRINT. Most print applications give you the opportunity to "print selected text". If yours does, just select the part of a thread which you want to print, then go to the print menu in your browser.

    I use FireFox which lets me 'print' Web pages to a .pdf file, a very useful feature.

    Thanks

    I was just hoping I was overlooking it like you do in a cabinet or something. My 57 year old 'pool boy' is allergic to pc so I have to print. jennifer

    Hey jj, and welcome to TFP!

    I have to 'print' too, 'cause my 61 year old 'pool boy' is ALSO allergic to pc! Must be something in the water.

    btw, my 'pool boy' is also my 'yard man'.

    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.

    Pool abbreviations

    I am a newbie here......my pool is being plumbed as I type this. I notice the abbreviation BBB, when refering to pool chemicals and adding chemicals to the pool. What is BBB?? Thank you in advance, and I look forward to spending a lot of time here and learning all I need to know about Pool care. I already ordered my test kit from suggestions on this site.
