    Howdy and Thanks from Round Rock, TX

    Just wanted introduce myself before starting a thread in the "Under Construction" forum. My name is Clark and this site was recommended to me by a friend who has been a member ever since he built his pool a few years ago. My wife, Mandy, and I recently signed a contract with a builder and although this is my first post, I've been lurking here and absorbing as much info as possible for the past few months. TFP proved to be an invaluable resource for us as we wrapped our heads around what all our options were and what it was we really wanted in both a pool and a builder. For that, I am greatly appreciative. All signs point to breaking ground in the next couple of weeks, and once we do, I'll get another "Under Construction" thread going. In the meantime, I'll keep on reading and order my TF-100 .

    Welcome to TFP!!

    The only thing that scars me is that you list a " Inline Chlorinator" in your equipment specs. To pool builders that is usually a 3" tab chlorinator. Very bad for use as an ongoing source of chlorine. I would recommend a little reading in Pool School. Start with these:
    ABCs of Water Chemistry
    Recommended Pool Chemicals
    How to Chlorinate Your Pool

    So again, welcome to TFP!!
