    Intro: PoolingInKC

    Hi Forum!
    We live in Overland Park, KS and had our pool built in 2014. We upgraded our automation to a Pentair EasyTouch system with iPhone remote access this spring and are loving it. The only recurring issue I seem to have is water clouding up after heavy rains but normally that clears up fairly quickly. I've been reading the Pool School topics and the forums and this seems like a GREAT resource. I stumbled upon this after reading a review of a pool book on Amazon.com. The reviewer said save your $$ and go to TFP. He was right!!

    I just figured I'd get used to the Photobucket method since I already have a Photobucket account! Thanks for the tip.

    Yeah, you'll want a kit because with those waterfalls and SWG your pH is going to constantly be going up up and away!

    Pretty pool!

    Saw the note in your signature about a test kit ... just wanted to let you know that if you become a supporter of TFP (possibly tax deductible) then you get a discount on the TF-100.
