I just wish our pool store would tell us the same stuff as we learn here, or at last part of the stuff we learn here. The store I go to just scares the crap out of you for using too much chlorine in your pool. They would like me to add only 10-15 L at a time to clear a 100,000 L green pool. So as a relatively new pool owner I was listening, now that I have found this site I will be more inclined to listen to what is said here. It just takes me a while to get my "school head" back on for learning again.
Yeah, I also realized that Richard is the go to guy. Richard helped me back in May with an Algae issue. I had algae for three straight years and was about to hang it up when I stumbled on this site. Not only did Richard solve my problem, he educated me in pool care and bleach, recommended a great test kit, and answered any question I had no matter how dumb it sounded. With his help and my new found knowledge, my pool has NEVER looked better than it does this year. Best of all, I haven't been inside a pool store all season. No need to ever go there again unless I need a raft or something. Just wanted to thank Richard again for all he does on the board!
