    Hello from Las Vegas

    Hello All, just joining from Las Vegas. Pool is 17 years old with a Caretaker 99 in floor, Pentair 2hp Whisperflow , Ultra Pure Ozonator. All original and showing signs of age. (Ozone probably not working at all) Hard to find trustworthy advice in Vegas so here I am.

    Welcome!

    A couple things specific to your locale: you may want to run higher CYA than the guidelines suggest, because the Vegas sun is brutal and high CH is going to be a fact of life. Pay attention to the CSI when you start messing around with poolmath. You can keep your pool from scaling without much difficulty up to 800 at least, if you're vigilant. Just file that away for now, don't obsess on it until you've digested the basics and have some hands-on experience with testing and dosing.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    HI! We got ya! All we work for are smiles and thanks! Got to love that!

    Do some light reading and you see what we are all about. Start with Pool School at the top of the page. It is a LOT of info that will take some time and rereading to absorb!

    Ask any and all questions you might have. Someone will have the answer!
