    A new contest wherein SeanB may make 12 million dollars

    Hi, everyone, (It's pet peeve time)

    I suggest a contest wherein each newbie who refers to "shock" as a noun be required to send SeanB 50 cents. (failure to read "Pool School" )

    Should some of you regulars likewise refer to "shock" as a noun then you should send SeanB $1000.00 (failure to be smart )

    (Sean and I have already agreed to a 50/50 split on the revenue but I fail to see how that affects the pure intentions of my post)

    Your post has given me quite a shock! (Yes, shock is a noun in that sentence but NOT in the way you were referring to! )

    Yes, you cannot put "shock" in your pool......you simply "shock" your pool.

    Please send SeanB $1000.00 (Sean, send my 500 to the address I specified.....looks like we're on our way!!)

    I hope you all see where Dave is going with this... using the wrong terminology (or repeating clever marketing names) only adds to the confusion. When we advice someone to "shock" their pool, they need to understand we are not telling them to go buy a bag of "shock."

    This pool school article explains what is meant when we use the term "shock."

    Technically you can't put bleach in your pool either - it's also a verb. People tell me not to use bleach in my pool I tell them I don't bleach

    my pool, I use 6% sodium hypochlorite from the grocery store as a sanitizer.

    2.
    1. The act of bleaching.
    2. The degree of bleaching obtained.

    Sorry, SPP,

    You have already revealed how well you compose English. I'll not let you off the hook!

    In fact, I'd say you fit in the "regular" category, so your offense would be $1,000.00

    SeanB is eagerly awaiting your first transgression!

    I think your always going to have some confusion. Especially for the person who is reading this site for the first time.

    I think alot of confusion could be avoided by asking someone to bring their chlorine to "shock levels".



    Shock should really be a description of a process. You need to bring your chlorine up...but you also need to maintain this level until your fight is over. To shock shouldn't be referred to as a single event, even though it can be.

    What in the shock are we talking about again? Who do I owe money?
