TroubleFreePool.com exists to develop and promote a simple, inexpensive, and effective system of pool care.....Trouble Free Pool Care (TFPC).
We provide a forum where pool owners can learn, develop and share their pool / spa knowledge.
We believe that armed with the power of understanding, any pool owner can achieve and maintain crystal clear water without reliance on the often unproductive advice and unneeded expense from pool stores.
We emphasize the importance of self management, self testing and a willingness to learn.
It is also our mission to help owners troubleshoot all parts of their pools....frequently allowing the owner to DIY a task that he/she could not accomplish alone.
With approximately 60,000 members, TFP is the largest and most influential pool & spa website on the Internet. The reason is simple: TFPC (Trouble Free Pool Care) is a methodology, not a product that you must purchase. It is being practiced by thousands of pool owners just like you.
Much of the chemistry you need to manage your pool, such as bleach for sanitation and baking soda for managing TA, are available at your local grocery store. The methods we teach are based on science, but they are simple, effective, and will save you money over traditional pool store methods.
We have a robust collection of articles on pool management in our Pool School. Here is a partial list:
- ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry (It's the place to start learning)
- The PoolMath Calculator (helps determine the amount of product to add to your pool based on test results)
- How to turn a Green Swamp into a Sparkling Oasis
- A Visual Encyclopedia of Pool Equipment
- Using a Salt Water Chlorine Generator
- Pool Filter Comparisons
- Troubleshooting and Maintaining your Pump/Filter
If you decide to become a member (it's free), please read “Before you Post” in Pool School. You will be warmly welcomed. Courtesy and tolerance is mandatory from every single poster...people just starting out and seasoned veterans alike.
We'll take the mystery out of pool water management and your eyes will be opened to the finest and most cost-effective way to have a beautiful pool or spa. Your experience here will be extremely rewarding...we promise.
