Hello, TFP!Hey guys! Been lurking in the corner here for a few weeks, but finally we got our new house and... it has a pool!
A pool wasn't a feature we were looking for, but we have it now and it's time to embrace it. It's in good shape, gets ALOT of direct sun, has minimal foliage around it to make it dirty, and has a seemingly overkill heater to go with it. No idea why one would install a heater on this pool since it bakes in the sun all day but, I'm not complaining... until I get a bill after using it I'm sure.
TFP has been assuring me it will go smoothly and now that we're moving in-- it's time to dive on it. No pun intended.
I loaded up my signature with the vitals I got on my pool. The liner is in decent shape, maybe I'll get a few years out of it. The previous owners took good care of the pool and it's in solid shape right now.
The previous owner would generally take water samples down the street to the pool supply shop, get advised on what to add, and would follow suit. I'd rather get a hold of what's going on and dial it in myself -- noone like a pool loaded with unnecessary chemicals unless needed. TFP seems to be a solid solution.
I've ordered my TF-100 kit and plan on doing a full test suite to get a baseline. The pool is (seemingly) in good shape right now.
No pool cleaner came with the pool, and after research I have a Poolvergnuegen x4 "ThePoolCleaner" en route to the house to get to work on the debris in the bottom.
I'll try hard to not ask the stupid questions - but I'll give fair warning, I've never managed a pool before.
Once I get my preliminary tests done (hopefully next week), I'll post my results and some of what I think I should be doing. I'd love critique!
Until then -- keep wet my friends.
