    Hello from South Africa

    Good day,

    I am very glad that I found this forum as I am a very keep pool keeper.
    My name is Oscar and I am from South Africa. The climate in South Africa
    is almost always hot and so it is a perfect place to own a pool.

    I love coming home and taking a swim in a cool, clean pool.
    At the moment the property I am staying on actually has two pools
    One is run using a saltwater chlorinator and the other is filtered using a normal sand filter.

    If you get a chance I recommend you take a look at my website (in my sig) regarding saltwater and
    chlorine pools.

    Thanks for the cool forum, I am definitely going to spend a lot of time here

    Welcome to TFP! I suggest you take a look at the Pool School which is a link in the upper right control bar area. It's a great place to start to learn about the principles espoused on this forum.

    16,000 gallon outdoor in-ground 16'x32' plaster pool; Pentair Intelliflo VF pump; Pentair IntelliTouch i9+3s control system; Jandy CL-340 square foot cartridge filter
    12 Fafco solar panels; Purex Triton PowerMax 250 natural gas heater (200,000 BTU/hr output); automatic electric pool safety cover; 4-wheel pressure-side "The Pool Cleaner"

    I have to second what Chemgeek said. I looked at your website and it is filled with misinformation. My suggestion is to read EVERYTHING in the pool school section of the forum, then read it all again. Once you do so you might want to post some questions in case there is some areas you still don't understand. As a moderator I also would like to ask you to read a bit more and study the forum before posting so you understand what we are all about.

    Hello Oscar D:
    It's good to see a South African on the site. I'm American, but I lived in RSA for over two years and might have stayed permanently if not for the crime and deteriorating infrastructure. I loved the country and the people. The climate in the Transvaal (Gauteng) is the best in the world.
    20' x 40' IG with vinyl liner volume approx. 35,000 gal.1.5 H.P. main pump, Polaris 280 cleaner W/ 3/4 H.P. booster pump
    Hayward sand filter, 3.14 sq ft, 62 gpm. Stenner 45 MPH10 chlorine feed pump. 1 micron final filter bags (home made and very effective)
