    New to Tucson and lucky enough to find a home with a 15yd lap pool!

    Hello! My wife and I are new citizens of this great forum and Tucson, AZ. We have siblings here and have visited for years, but finally moved when the kids flew the coop. We both work as physical therapists and enjoy swimming and were super lucky to find an affordable home WITH a lap pool!

    Now we are on the steep learning curve of maintaining it and are doing our best to go at it on our own with the BBB method and information we found here at TFP. Been through a couple of algae outbreaks already and we are learning every day...but having fun doing it!

    We look forward to learning more here and sharing what we learn when we can!

    Welcome to TFP! As mentioned... a reliable test kit is key! Get the TF100!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
