    You can count on alot of pools being drained down to refill
    with fresh water to limit the amounts of nitrates that are
    full of copper. With the restrictions of what the EPA is
    allowing to-date in pool fungacides that work poorly, we can
    count on more drainage and fresh starts. Anyone in the
    sunshine state got any idea on how many thousands of pool
    water gets pumped into the environment. Although we pay for
    the treatment here in the purchase price for the water, there
    are currently no requirement to drain to treatment facility.
    I understand that is all but going to start being required by
    the municpalities in the near term. I can attest to the
    green slime being resistant to the cu. It took a supper
    shock clorination just to get it burned out. Nothing works
    right without a balanced ph either.
