I know there was a disscussion on the box about where to get the best dechlor for the least $$$ and I saw many good suggestions but I have never been able to get the search feature to work for me......:furious:

I would wait until my grandson comes for a visit but I'm out now and I need to do some water changes soon.

So HELP!

If you use the 'Advanced Search' you have more options and can choose to only search specific forums.

By not working, do you mean you are getting an error? Or just not pulling the info you are expecting?

Even with the advanced search it may be hard to find a specific post.
Your gonna get a lot of results no matter what you search
unless the post has a specific word that's not in any other post.

I'd be happy if it gave me "ONE" result.

I enter "dechlorinator" and any choice and I get

Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.
