Taking Care Of My Own Pool

by Tom

You have motivated me to finally take care of my pool. for the first 14 yrs it hasn't been a problem, but lately it is terrible. I'm getting too old to brush the walls every week or so. I have ordered the great test kits you suggested. (that was confusing, since there are a few differences in the top model.


I ordered the top kit but it doesn't come with the pool water care booklet) anyhow, I shocked the pool with 4 gal or liquid chlorine and have cleaned the filter 5 times in as many days. I'm waiting for the kit to arrive so I will know what to do next. I'm sure there will be many issues to get the water balanced. you have got me up and running and hoping for a clear pool at all times.

I wish you luck with your pool. I recently had a personal consult with a nice lady who moved here from China. I have her video testimony and will shortly post that on my site and YouTube. She says in her video that her daughter can now swim like a mermaid. There was a slight language barrier and her husband didn't speak any English. She purchased a house with a pool that had been closed and covered for nearly 9 months. It was nasty green and the sand filter didn't work. She knew literally and virtually nothing about pools. All she did know is she had a hole in her backyard filled with green water.

She purchased a consult and along with the 3 eBooks and a couple quick emails she was able to take care of her filter and clear and balance her pool water within 1 week for about $45. And now she maintains it like a pro. I tell you this because if she can do it I know you can take care of your pool. That was an extreme circumstance but she got through it and understood all of it.

Take care and good luck.

I RAN INTO YOUR WEB SITE BY ACCIDENT. I WAS IMPRESSED. I HAVE AN INGROUND FIBERGLASS 20,000 GAL POOL WITH A CARTRIDGE FILTER. I'VE NEVER LEARNED MUCH ABOUT CHEMISTRY SO I JUST ADD CHLORINE TO KEEP IT FROM TURNING GREEN. I FIND THAT THE WALLS ARE VERY GREEN. I'M GETTING OLD AND FIND THE SCRUBBING OF THE WALLS TO DIFFICULT TO DO. BUT WHEN I HAVE SCRUBBED THEM, THEY TURN GREEN AGAIN IN 4 OR 5 DAYS. I'VE NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM IN THE PAST. 16 YRS OF IT.

SO I NEED TO LEARN MORE AND NOT HAVE TO WORK SO HARD. I CAN'T AFFORD A POOL COMPANY SO I WILL STUDY YOUR INFO AND HOPEFULLY LEARN TO TAKE CARE OF IT MYSELF. ODD PART IS, NO ONE USES THE POOL ANYMORE. MY WIFE USE TO USE IT 5 TIMES A DAY, BUT SHE IS NOW HANDICAPPED AND CAN'T GET IN OR OUT OF THE POOL SO IT SITS AND HAS BECOME ANOTHER BURDEN.

THANK YOU,

TOM
