    Hello from Pensacola, FL

    New to forum and pool maintenance. Stumbled across your site and have been reading for a week or so. My pool was a dark green mess. Quickly realized that I needed a test kit and ordered as I have always used pool store. Recent trips out of town led to my current mess ("knowledgeable" friend was supposedly caring for pool). Ordered my TF-100 and it arrived 2 days ago. Was "shocking" pool with liquid chlorine before test arrival. So....I'm trying to get my pond back to a pool. Eager to learn and become a happy pool owner!

    Very happy to hear you already have the TF-100. Amazing how different your results are from the pool store. You're on the road to recovery now. If you have any questions about performing the SLAM, please let us know. Welcome to TFP.

    Welcome. Sounds like you're on your way.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
