    I just have to tell someone about my dream!

    I had a dream (nightmare) the other night that my sparkling clean pool started to turn green and instead of using chlorine to clean it up, I was using hardboiled eggs :P ! I have no idea where I got that from, but I woke up kinda scared that I dumped eggs into my pool! Thank goodness it was only a dream and my pool is still clean and sparkly (and egg free)!

    Just thought I would share. Have a good day everyone!!

    Hardboiled eggs????
    Didn't you learn anything in Pool School - NEVER use hard boiled eggs, only fresh farm raised brown Grade A eggs (preferrably large) should be used in pools.

    Maybe the nightmare stemmed from years of using pucks??

    Oddly enough, the science behind the dream is that an egg' shell is mostly calcium.
    - Adding calcium to the water will cause the water to turn cloudy and contribute to high TDS.
    - As the egg cracks, the egg whites are 7.8 - 8.0 pH, making the strength of any chlorine in the water less effective (with higher pH levels).
    - The resulting egg white and yoke introduces bacteria. The bacteria aid the yuckies in growing, which can lead to algae.
    - uh....

    OK, not too funny. I was looking to find the 6 degrees of separation...but only found the three.

    Circleranch ... funny post! Must be "Life on a ranch" huh?

    Poolsean-yeah, "Life on a ranch", but we don't actually have horses or anything (unless you count my moose of a German Shepherd Dog!). We do have 2 fish ponds though and hubby is a pretty good fish wrangler!
