    Oh happy day. I did what you guys suggested (in hte off topic thread) about my green swimming pool and it worked. It is allmost as clear as a glass of cold spring water. :clapping: bad news, my better wont start,:cry: one click, is that always the battery? So okay, I proceed to my yards that I can use my Z on. It quit about 150 yards away from the street and my truck, not to mention down a very steep hill. At first I tought it was out of fuel (and I still think it was) but I switched to a full tank and it ran for about 5 min and stopped. I came home to regroup, but I am down to my 21" and a John Deere L 100 residential I have had for year. *trucewhiteflag* I might just strart drinking beer.:drinkup:

    I bought it the first part of the season, in fact it was about 20 degrees when I picked it up. I love it, I think this is the battery and the hot weather.

    the formula that i like to follow on days like that is as follows:
    p=number of problems
    d=dollars to repair SUM of problems
    w=high temperature of day in question
    b=number of 12 ounce beers required to ease the pain

    (p x d) / w = b


    the next home depot calculator is supposed to have this feature built in, otherwise excel is pretty easy to use.

    better luck tomorrow friend!!
