    Ready For Pool School

    We bought this house four years ago despite the large pool out back, but we quickly grew to love the pool. The first year we had a pool maintenance company take care of everything. Nice results, but very expensive. Then three years of depending on the local pool store for everything. Mixed results, and still expensive. I'm ready to learn how to do this. So glad to know TFP is here!

    Welcome to TFP!

    School starts right here, Pool School - ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry

    I recommend getting a TF100 from I've been buying mine from there for 4 years now.

    Oh, and people are going to want to see pics of that big, old pool. Easiest way is to create a Photobucket account for free, upload pics, copy the IMG code to the right of the pic and paste it in your post. That will embed the pic right into your thread for all to see.
