    First House AND First Pool!

    Hey friends,

    Just bought our first house in Phoenix, AZ with an inground pool (the only way my wife said she would stay here!) and trying to learn how to take care of it myself. I am really excited to learn from everyone and hopefully one day be helpful to others!

    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!

    Welcome! I remember telling my husband I need a pool, he didn't want Inge & guess who uses it the most?! He does! He even enjoys cleaning it!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
