Found this guy at the bottom of the skimmer basket this morning when I went to change the hairnet. I’m surprised they can survive with the amount of chlorine in here!

Pool is completely clear now, overnight FC loss passed and CC test only needed one drop to clear (0.5). SLAM is over!

I can't thank you all at TFP enough for getting this green monster turned into what it is today :whoot::lovetfp:

Next job tonight will be to install the solar cover and solar cover reel! I will say that I can also see rougher spots on the liner on the bottom where I'm suspecting that granular chlorine bleached it a bit. Just another reason I will be using liquid chlorine exclusively from now on.

Looks Fabulous! Great job! Sparkly TFP water! :goodjob:

Also, you will have to pour the liquid chlorine in slowly because liquid chlorine can bleach the liner. I've made that mistake even after following TFP methods. :hammer:

Got the solar cover on last night, it was fairly easy but the instructions were a bit backwards. They have you putting a cap on the roller part and then putting the T-Base on, but then you have to screw in 3 screws on the side of the cap and try to maneuver a drill or screwdriver through the T-Base. And the T-Base is only held on by a cotter pin, so it's easier just to take that off, drill and then put it back on. 🤷‍♂️

But it's on so that's what counts. Nicole will be able to take a dip Saturday or Sunday once the weather clears up, unfortunately I'll be busy.

We're also supposed to get 1-2 more inches of rain today (yes just today) so I think I'm going to have to drain a bit, it was more than halfway up the skimmer last night. I'm getting really tired of all of this rain!
