Places– of Charm

Yippee, we “inherited” a pool with our newly purchased home.  I am learning all I can about pool maintenance and found John Brace’s book, POOL MAINTENANCE MADE EASY, to be helpful.  I printed out the swimming pool service record on his website, on his website.  Yesterday I spent around a hundred dollars at Walmart buying a leaf skimmer, net, and wide brush (with a telescoping handle that fits all).  Also I bought the chlorine tablets with the insert-within floater.  Just in case there’s algae clinging to corners, I bought a scotch-brite pool and spa scrubber and a bottle of algae guard to prevent algae.  Most importantly I bought the hth 6-way test kit for total chlorine, bromine, pH, total alkalinity, total hardness, and cyanuric acid.

  1. Hey there, Mary Alice, I am excited. This is true chemistry, ha ha. Today I need to skim and bag all the leaves on the bottom that are beginning to form algae. Our grandson D’mitri wants to learn how to do everything. He’s going into the 6th grade and will enjoy it. Roxy (2nd grader) is a slightly different matter since she likes to push buttons and immediately found various buttons on the pool pump. Right now the pump is set to go on and off at certain times of the day, something like a sprinkler system.
