I smell a franchise! The mid south needs one of these & I’m your girl! Getting regeant refills is a joke around here, testing borates - forget it! We could also sell swg’s (appropriately sized for the customer’s pool volume of course - unlike the most services around here). I see shelves of Muriatic acid & pool salt as well as a beautiful line up of dolphinsI have this perfect spot around the corner from me where I could build the very first Trouble Free Pools Pool Store … all sparkly white tiled with the blue logo …. But it would be a very boring place to work. One side of the store would be stocked with test kits and Taylor refills with a DIY test station so customers could test their own water. Results would log directly to their PoolMath App account. The other wall would be stocked with 2x packs of gallon jugs of liquid chlorine and granular CYA. There would be a reusable liquid chlorine bottle fill station in the back and muriatic acid fill station outside. Check out would be completely automated with AI technology setup by @JamesW such that you simply walk out with your goods and the store automatically charges your credit card. All I would do is sit on a folding chair in the corner constantly adjusting the thermostat to achieve a perfect indoor temperature of 74F and 50% relative humidity and mumble to myself.
Thanks for getting this posted on the TFP YouTube channel.
I was unable to watch live but just caught it on YouTube.
All of these TFP Expert Discussion vids have been chalk full of great info and I like how they are always a mix of information.
Some info for the one's that are just getting started (always good info for review) and then the more advanced (or "down-in-the-weeds") info as well.
Please keep these coming!!!
Thanks to all who are conducting the discussions as well as the behind the scenes folks.
it doesn't lose chlorine, it turns to salt - with the SWG, the salt is cycled to make the chlorine disinfectant. with manual adding it gets turned to salt but not back into the disinfecting chlorine, so you have to add that manually. (laymans terms here, the chemistry is more complicated than that but this is the general principle)Hmm, but what is the process that causes my liquid-chlorinated pool to lose chlorine? Does UV oxidize chloride ions, causing them to combine into chlorine gas and fly away? If so, wouldn't the same thing happen to the chloride ions in the exposed basin of the SWCG pool?
I'm missing something that is probably very basic. (no pun intended)

you don't need to add more salt because it stays in the water - it doesn't evaporate. about the only thing that evaporates out of a pool is the water itself.
Thank you so lot for this very interesting discussion I saw on the youtube replay.The recording of the session will be on TFP-TV for future viewing.
