My name is Ray. My wife and I just bought a lovely older one in Wichita Falls, Tx. I've never wanted a pool before because of the perceived headache. Well, now I have one. The upside is it's small, approximately 8,500 gallons. I bought a book for dummies and have read it cover to cover. Also bought some chemicals and test kit from Walmart. I look forward to learning from experts on this forum!
