😂 I have seen a few of them, and am happy to help, but I'm not sure bowing is in order. 😉 It's no great accomplishment to be knowledgeable about your profession, it's kind of a job requirement. 🤔
Ah but sharing that knowledge with a group of enthusiasts and DIY’ers is something that not all professionals are willing to do. And for that, you are appreciated. :)

I’m honestly more jealous of the community here and the help you can get vs. the end result of my pool vs. others. Why can’t there be a Trouble Free Gardening website? Or Trouble Free Auto Maintenance? or Trouble Free Keep Wife Happy site?

@IceShadow came for the help, and stayed for the community, to be a part of the help one could get.

TFP would like to extend its thanks for Dustin's service to others.

This is where @splashpad and @kimkats kept me going and encouraged me and kept pushing me to work through it, POP!! So I did, and what do you know, you guys were right!
...
SO THANK YOU, TFP!
💙💛💜❤️🧡
Just so happy I was around to watch that transformation! YOU deserve SO much credit for pushing through when many would have thrown in the towel!! And watching you pay it forward is the icing on the cake!

@splashpad has returned home to help and we are glad to have her back with the team.
I'm SO happy to still be able to help encourage other pool owners here and there! I really love the AGP side of things, even us little guys can be dedicated :p

He taught me the ways of running the saltwater generator 24/7
No joke. My pool school dude lost me after hello. I was green as could be and had zero clue about tweaking pump runtime and cell%. 5 minutes in he kinda sighed and said 'or just run the dang thing on low and rarely need to touch it'

*record scratch*

I WANNA DO THE THING ABOUT THE THING WHERE I DONT HAVE TO DO THE THING. :ROFLMAO:

We should just tell everyone with a SWG to do it! It works so well! Makes life soooooo much easier! I would never had though of it though if you hadn’t suggested it! Seriously my pool is so clear now! I don’t really spend that much on chemicals at all anymore since you suggested that and I when I leaned to let the TA fall to 60 and let the PH stay at 7.8. I brought the liquid chlorine up to SLAM level when I opened back in March cause of all the worms and I spent about $20.00 for a 4 pack of liquid pool shock chlorine for that. I had to add 4 bags of salt for around $35.00, and I plenty of CYA from last year. So far this year I’m only around $55.00 in with chemicals! It works that good! Best pool suggestion ever!
