    New Soon to be Pool Owner in New York

    I am in contract to purchase a home will be closing next month. The house has a 4 year in ground salt water pool (concrete pour with vinyl liner). 20'x40'. 8' at the deep end. i am a DIYer (cars, electronics, building) so i look forward to learning enough to take care of this myself. Here are some pics.

    Welcome to TFP!! We are so glad you came.

    Good for you! That looks lovely. While you are waiting, there are a few things you should do.

    Order one of the recommended test kits. The TF-100, is the most suggested one. It's available from TFTestkits.net You'll also want to get the magnetic stirrer. It makes testing fun! I mean it makes it more consistent and somewhat easier.

    Also, you'll want to do some reading. I suggest you start with:
    What is Trouble Free Pool Care?
    ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry

    And then work your way through:
    Pool School
    Bob - Palm Beach by San Juan Pools. approx 5000 gals., Pentair 320 cartridge filter (all new guts installed by me), Goldline SWG, 'New to me' Kreepy Krauly Sand Shark, Intermec 104 Timer Test kit: TF-100 w/Speed Stir

    Jeff, what a pretty set up! Did you buy it for the yard/pool or for the house? BOTH are wonderful!
