Hi from Summertime Cali!
I'm Rick from the UK via Fiji and Detroit! I was a working scuba instructor for 10 years and have been waterlogged for a good period of time now. I've spent a good chunk of hours maintaining pools but never had one in quite as much trouble as the one I just inherited. I've been looking over these forums and there is a ton of info and lots of helpful folks so here's my hello, then I'll take a deep breath, duck under, and pop up over on another post somewhere else!
Thanks in advance, this is going to be interesting : )
