Lubing the O-Ring
|pool 1 |
1. A whole in the ground into which you throw money.
Luckily, the pool supply store had it in stock. A nice young man helped me find what I needed. Unfortunately there is one other product that goes with the purchase of a new o-ring.
Store Clerk: "Do you need any lube?"
CJ: "I have some at home - for the treadmill" (nice recovery CJ). Can I just use that?"
Store Clerk: "Depends - is it petroleum based or silicone based?"
CJ's Brain: Petroleum based? That's the kind you are not supposed to use with condemns. But for treadmills? I don't think treadmills care.
Store Clerk: "We sell it here."
CJ: "Great, I'll take one tube."
Then the other clerk chimes in telling me the all pool parts that could use a good greasing. Now I have two young men talking to me about lube. Please, unless I'm in a shop in Provincetown, I shouldn't not be having this discussion.
Long story short, I paid for my products, went home, and fixed the chlorinator. Now if I could just get the dirt out of The Wet Spot, we could all dive in.
