    Yet another new member...

    Hey All,

    I started following this site a while back because I like the idea of using the most basic chemicals possible in my pool and not relying on what the pool stores want sell you.

    My wife and I just had a new pool built. It's not our first pool, but it's our first using an SWG for chlorine.

    Looking forward to figuring things out along with everyone else!

    Welcome to TFP!

    I hope the build went well. Pictures of a sparkling new pool are always great!
