Re: A couple of tips I thought everybody knew. Anybody got some
I absolutely love it and THANK YOU!crabboy said:Take your water sample from 2 feet under without getting your arm wet or bending over.
Using a 3/4" pvc pipe, about 4' long, hold your hand on the top of the pipe to prevent water from entering (air from escaping), sink the pipe about 2' down and then remove your hand (pipe fills up). Replace your hand and remove the pipe and put over your water sample cup that you have placed on the coping. Slowly let air enter and dispense the water into the cup.
I started using this method this winter when I no longer wanted to stick my arm in the cold pool. Now I continue doing it so I don't have to bend over.
