    Smile New Member Intro: Lepidoptera

    Hello!

    I have been lurking for a few months since my husband and I decided to build a pool. I was primarily interested in learning about pool chemistry (yes, I've already purchased my TFT-100 test kit! ), but have also enjoyed following other members' pool build journeys - especially Suz!

    We live in Toronto, Canada and are building a 16x30, 20K gallon rectangular gunite in-ground pool with an SWG and attached, but winterized raised spa. We are at a point where our PB needs us to make some decisions on our equipment and I will be seeking some feedback on his proposed configuration in another post. Once I figure this out, I will update my sig line!

    Very nice. Welcome to TFP. TF-100 purchased! That's great considering your location. Others will be jealous. Looking forward to pics of your pool. And of course, Suz has another on-line fan, so she will be thrilled. Enjoy the site.
