Its funny that I saw this thread today, because I just bought this house with the pool last fall. Many of you know how bad it was from my firsts threads in this forum. Long story short is I bought the house from my sister and her husband. They had the pool built back in the early 2000's. My Mom came over to visit yesterday, and she said that is the clearest the water has ever looked in that pool.... and that is funny because I had just said to my wife..."you know when we came to visit back before this house was ours I dont think the pool looked this good" Its also ironic that back when I first opened the pool and was struggling top get it cleared up mainly because of equipment neglect over the years my brother-in-law said more than once..." You need to take a sample of water to the pool store. They will fix you up. That is what I always did" That explains why the pool now looks better than ever!!!! TY TFP with your help I now look like I know what I am doing.
I'm so happy I found this place before my pool was finished. I have 2 friends at work who both relied on the pool store. One still does, the other moved and does not have a pool any longer. I have been working on him to get him changed over. Old habits die hard.
I was headed down that road, from their recommendations. So happy I didn't ever get there.
