    A greeting from Spain

    Hi there Trouble Free Pool people, just popped into this forum to read up and learn about pool care. I am based in Spain and we have pretty hot and long summers. I have never owned a pool until this summer. Had a friend open the pool for me because he has a pool himself and been happy with it until the last week or 3. That green monster started showing up...

    One thing I donīt get here in Spain: I cannot buy a 5 way testing kit anywhere! Only chlorine and ph testing ...weird. So I might have to order one of those kits you guys are raving about online in the US and have it shipped over to me in Spain.

    My pool is 41.000 litters (a bit more than 10.000 gallons) and runs with a sand filter. I am a complete newbie and hope to pick up some pool wisdom here.

    Best regards to you all!

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    You really must find a way to get a FAS-DPD chlorine test kit. There are a few threads discussing what other members in Spain we able to find and get if you search.
