My name is Vela and I'm in League City Texas. I received my TF-100 in the mail today, but my pool is not scheduled for excavation until late October (currently getting permits). As much as I am excited for getting a new pool, I'm excited to find this community that is willing to share its knowledge. I have pool owner friends who giggled at me when I ordered my test kit and challenged me about brown, black, green, and all sorts of algae and how I was going to control it. I told them I was not worried about the algae. I am worried about the water chemistry. As I've read in this forum, some folks just don't get it and never will. I look forward to interacting with everyone here and I know this forum will make my pool-owning experience a successful/great one!
