    I now own a pool, lots to learn!

    Hey guys I have a 15,000 gallon gunite pool, I'm located in north Texas, I will attach a few pics. We purchased the house a week ago and I am excited to learn everything I need to know! I did just order the TF 100 test kit with the drop salt test also.
    Is it safe to say the turn knob at bottom is a freeze protector?

    Nice! and it's not green and you have a proper test kit on the way...already ahead!

    Looks like your timers are missing the "nubs" that turn the pumps on and off.

    Hey y'all look! He posted pictures AND ordered a test kit! Can we keep him????????? LOL

    I love your pool and fireplace! I can't wait to see pics at night of the pretty lights in the roof!

    Do you know how chlorine is added to your pool? I saw you ordered a salt test kit. I am guessing you have a SWG.

    If you would be so kind as to add your pool info in your siggy (settings, edit signature) that will help us help you.

    I am going to send you some light reading. It will help you know the hows and whys of TFP

    We do have pool school and it's not bad at all. And the best part is, you don't have anyone pulling at your shirt begging to go swimming. So.... you have a good bit of time to devour pool school. Start with the ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry. It's our starting point and hinges on everything we suggest to you n you'll know, "I know what they're saying!".

    Nice pool! You're going to love it, especially as a TFP Pool.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
