    Counting Down! Southwestern Ontario

    Hi Everybody!

    So slightly jumping the gun here, but we're less than two weeks from closing on a beautiful house with a very nice indoor pool. In preparation, I sourced a K-2006 test kit (not easy at a good price in Canada), started watching the price on chlorine sources, and counting the days until it's ours!

    Brief summary though, of the interesting points:

    - tile lined, flagstone deck
    - 15 x 30 foot rectangular, approximately 9 feet deep end
    - pool heated with a heat exchanger circuit off of a natural gas boiler (the main home heater)
    - enclosure heated as its own boiler zone, two radiators with convectors
    - change rooms, sauna, restroom and shower in the pool enclosure
    - attached to, but separated from the house by exterior windows and door
    - tiles freshly acid washed and re-grouted with epoxy grout
    - new sand filter

    Anybody else in Ontario have a sense of the best chlorine prices? From what I have seen, Canadian Tire 5L of 10.8% at $5.99 is a leader, as well as Chlorox Concentrated (8.25%) on sale for $1.99 (regular $3.99) is the best I have seen.

    I have done a ton of reading here and on other forums, since indoor air quality is a major concern. I'm confident that I can handle the chemistry, and I know that a well maintained pool doesn't smell - and now that I know the way things work, I'm not very likely to use public pools anymore.

    Can't wait, and can't believe it's going to be ours!

    Would love to see the pool as soon as you close.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Pictures coming, but not until it's ours! Obviously not comfortable posting pictures of somebody else's pool
