Every single summer it seems that this has to be explained over and over. If you own a pool, you made a very personal decision to take on that level of headache. You have to keep it clean.

I get it. You're all excited about getting in your pool over the July 4th weekend. Probably have family and friends coming over that you've been bragging to all year. Suddenly, it dawns on you that you need to fill your pool and you need a way to get it done.
