    New home and pool owner

    Just bought my first home with inground pool in albany ga. Very stoked but so much to learn. I got my k-2006 test kit and hopefully can post my results tomorrow and get my pool ready to go asap. Thanks for having me!

    Hey there from Augusta (sort of)! You're going to learn so much here on how to care for your pool. Start by reading the Pool School articles (link on top right of this site).
    Please update your signature with information about your pool- type (vinyl, fiberglass, cement?) and how you chlorinate, what type of filter and pump and other doo dads you might have. This helps us help you.
