    Wes45 is checking in

    I was looking around the net for cheap chemicals to start up the pool in a couple of months here in the DFW area and found this website. I've learned quite a lot in the last hour reading the info here and will probably go the BBB route over the summer after the current chemicals are depleted. Looking forward to learning a lot from the folks here.
    This is my first pool and I had it built 3 1/2 years ago.

    Hi Wes45 and welcome to TFP!

    You've found the best pool site on the net, IMHO!

    We've got plenty of room for another pool owner from Texas!

    As I keep wondering, "Does everyone in Texas have a pool?!"

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
