    Hello from H-town Texas

    As you can tell from my member name, I'm ready to " fill it with dirt".
    I've had my pool/spa (regrettably) for 12 years and never intend to have another one.

    If anything, it will be a "party" hot tub.

    Anyway, I have a issue (with pool....HA) that has me frustrated and once again I'd just rather FILL IT!!

    Posting a new thread in the appropriate forum.

    Welcome to TFP. We'll have you regretting your poor attitude towards your innocent pool.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    fill-it-with-dirt LOL We had one guy with the user name of Justfillitin..........he HATED his pool and was were you are now. We worked with him and helped him learn how to take care of his pool the TFP. He has changed his user name to Dontfillitin LOL. He even comes back quite often to help others!

    Re: Hello from H-town Texas

    I am falling out of my chair here! I WILL be back to check on you. I am at work right now, and was out sick yesterday (played with the pool a little, don't tell on me)....

    First off, here was my opening thread.... My user name says it all!!

    Second.... What are your issues (of the aquatic kind lol)

    Third, I'm nobody compared to most of the people here at TFP, but I am the poster child for what they can do to help you.

    Again, I will be back in. If there is another thread, please link it here for me!
    25,000 gallon IG with vinyl liner. Not sure how old it is. Sand filter, not sure what brand/size, Hayward Super Pump c48k2n143b1. I have a Polaris 180 cleaner on it's last wheel (haha). I'm still not sure about water restrictions, but haven't gotten any hate mail about the amt I used last summer. I absolutely LOVE my TF-100 test kit.
