    Cool Lots to learn!

    We purchased an older home with a pool that had leaks and hadn't been taken care of. Ugly crack repairs, bad staining, broken and missing tile, etc. We are just finishing the re-plaster job, including new tile and decking. It's been 20 years since we've had to take care of a pool. We have lots to learn (or re-learn.)
    12,000 gal., IG free form with spa, built in 70's, just re plastered w/Wet Edge Luna Quartz in Keywest.

    A tip: you can get a TF100 test kit quickly from Water Testing - TFTestkit TF-100 Seven Test Kit - TF-100 They're near Sacramento. Much closer than North Carolina.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
