    3. If your sample turns blue, green, red, or chartreuse.....you're safe.

    4. If your sample stays clear you have a very bad case of it and you should immediately take cygnusecks advice and drain your pool.
    Okay, I tested mine and I have it. The problem is, I tested my fill water and it's in there too! I even tested some rain water that was standing in a bucket and it was in there too! Someone told me that it can be removed by heating the water to boiling.

    Oh NO !! We just found out the bus was engulfed in DHMO and will no longer flame. Do you realize how embarrassing it will be, going to hell in a non-flaming bus?

    Talking Re: Sodium Hydrogen Chloride OH NOES!!

    Michael, sorry to pirate your thread with a 'one liner', but the chemistry club of the poolforum apparently needed a playground - a little break from "my pool is green ... my pH is all F'd up ... I can't get a reading for X ... etc" is a good and wholesome thing. Sorry it interupted your thread.



    PS, Even if our bus to hell were flaming, we'd be ok if we brought enough DHMO

    That's only because you get it, can't you immagine the posts from newbies if it was on the forum?? - We'd be explaining for months

    LOL ROF
    I am new to the pool thing but have been a med tech for years. Been lurking for a few weeks learning as much as possable. I love geting a new nurses by asking them if they wanted a dihydrogenmonoxide level on their new admits to the med surg ward and warning about overdoseing them with it.
    Thanks for the laugh needed it. I work nights and needed a boost here at 4 am.
