I am Manfred from Delray Beach, FL. I had a new pool installed that finished construction in September of 2015. I have been learning about pool equipment and pool chemistry like drinking from a water hose, as the pool builder was not much of help, never got the promised pool school from them. However, thanks to the Internet and forums like this, I consider myself much more advanced now. I do like my Hayward Omnilogic system, as I can check on my pool and control it from anywhere.
The pool has a salt system, so I can control the chlorine level also from my iPhone.
I am doing all the water testing myself now, also compare what results the pool stores come up with. We have Leslie's and Pinch a Penny nearby.
i am eager to learn about the best test kits around, as I am currently can only measure chlorine, pH and TA. For CYA and CH I currently rely on the pool store but want to do it myself in the future.
