    Hello all

    I thought I would say hi all and quit being a lurking mute.

    I have been lurking and learning since February. Most questions I have thought of so far have been asked and answered previously or can be found in "Pool School". I have read it, some sections more than once. I have in my possession already the TF-100.

    Our pool has been very ugly, it is a repo house so that isn't the only ugly part. There was about two inches of dehydrated pool chemicals and some dirt covering the entire deep end plus trash that the wind deposits in there. The equipment had been removed except the heater. All the pipes at the equipment pad are labled to say where they come from or where they go and the direction the water travels. The plaster was blistering and peeling from the sun.

    Thank you for the vast amount of timely information. You do a great job of keeping the board on topic and friendly.

    Welcome! If you have the test kit, you're well on your way! It was the best investment I have made to get my pool "trouble-free"! (Along with everyone's help, of course!!)
