What is the best way? I was tempted to forward the newsletter from May, http://www.troublefreepool.com/newslett ... wsletter=6 but, worried I will get the shrug off for that. I also want to point them to the website, but we are talking about 2 people who don't care about throwing money at the pool....I am just tired of the complaining.
the two people are my father-in-law and my brother. my brother's pool gets green on tuesday and he has to shock it on wednesday and thursday to get it cleaned by saturday. he constantly complains about it when I'm there, but I know if I tell him to use bleach in his pool I will get the 3rd degree about how bad it is.
my father-in-law is the same way, he complains about the pool constantly, but always has to point out how much he spends on it. each of them, in the past month, have spent over $150 on chemicals, while I on the other hand have spent ~$40 on chemicals(bleach and acid). The biggest obstacle is that I am only 23, so they both look down on me, despite how knowledgeable I may be on subjects. Originally, I was just going to keep my mouth shut about it, let them waste their money, but as the complaining has increased over the season now, I just want them to be able to handle the pool cheaply and by themselves...
so to recap, how have you convinced non-believers/thick headed individuals?
