PhosFree for pool water

Page 2 of 2  


When you have enough confidence, sense and experience to test your own pool water instead of taking it over to the pool store boy and having him tell you what over priced chemicals you should buy, then maybe we'll start to think you might know what you're talking about.

= I see. You're one of those "I'm smarter than the world." kind of guys. Obviously a cover for your lack of self confidence.
The store I go to usually tries to steer me away from "over priced chemicals" as much as possible. I was the one that wanted to use PhosFree based on suggestions from this group. Well worth the money. Thanks for your tips on PH levels but I doubt that was the OP's problem based on the information given.
I noticed, at the store I go to, I had to request the phosphate test. I also noticed the test strips for testing phosphates are expensive. I looked into buying a test kit for phosphates but it doesn't make sense to buy one so I let the store do it for me.
BTW: I remember you. You used to be in my troll file. I'm glad I drug you out. You're good for a laugh. :-) Once you get that self confidence problem worked out we can probably have a pleasant conversation. Work on it. ;-)

No, that person is clearly you. You jumped all over me for simply suggesting that Micajah had a valid point regarding PH. Chlorine is less effective at higher PH. So, since he has an algae problem, that aspect is something he should be aware of. It's better he keep the PH at the low end of the acceptable range. Capiche?
YOU on the other hand had great objections to either of us having anything to say on the subject and started the smart ass remarks, ie Do you even own a pool? You're all "geniuses", etc. Apparently you think you're the one that is smarter than the world and has been appointed the sole dispenser of comments on the subject.
I do think however think I'm smarter than the average kid the pool store has testing your water and that you listen to for advice.

Sure they do. I'm sure a lot of people here who've been to the various pool stores over the years are gonna believe that one. Why, they all have Arm and Hammer Baking Soda in big bags sitting there, instead of the Alkalinity Balance 200 for 6X the price, right? In fact, what they typically do is tell you your alkalinity is low, then walk you over to the stack of the Alkalinity Balance 200 and tell you how much you need to buy.
>I was the one that wanted to use PhosFree

Did I ever suggest that it was his main problem? It's like me telling a guy who has heart disease that it would also be a good idea to keep his weight under control. And you going on the attack. Following your logic, you would object to that and raise a big fuss because you instead ASSUME what his weight is and that it's appropriate for his condition because he said he'd simply been to the doctor. That is exactly what you did with the poster, assuming a level of PH, when he never said one word about it.

And if you knew half as much as you make out you do, you'd know that test strips are notoriously inaccurate. A real Taylor liquid reagent test kit for phosphates costs $30, that you can use dozens of times. I guess that's too expensive for you, so you let the kid at the store interpret the crap test strips for free and then sell you whatever they say you need. Gee, I wonder how much that free test really costs?

I'm sure I'm in good company there.

Why would anyone want to have a pleasant conversation with an obvious asshole like you?

= Why do you insist on being so unpleasant?
Oh well, If that's how you choose to live your life so be it.
Live long and prosper my friend. ;-)

Better check your own mental health asshole. You're the one that just made essentially the same post twice. With all the happy faces and good wishes BS, you remind me of Ned Flanders.

Eh...You just think you're tough. I'll bet you're actually a pussy (cat) :-)
You do know that if a :-) is rubbing you the wrong way, you've got a problem?
You remind me of a insecure person that tries to cover it up by trying to act tough on the internet. This is how I picture you:
