    Cool It's Swimming Time in Texas

    Howdy

    The site was recommended by a neighbor who installed a pool last year. We filled ours up two weeks ago and have started swimming. I'm still working on getting the correct chemical balance but have already heeded the warning...small changes, wait, and test again.

    Waiting for the test kit to arrive as we speak. The neighbor is a chemical engineer who works filtration systems. He has a lot of knowledge.

    HI! The only "sad" thing about this is you will NEVER know what it is like to be "pool stored"! Your pool will ALWAYS look nice and be easy to care for. Because of that you may not truly appreciate the TFP way LOL

    Have you tried out the swim jet yet? Can you really swim with it?
