    Hello from Israel!

    Hey everyone! I've been reading random results off this great forum for years (thank you Google), time to be a part of the conversation.

    My challenges every year have been mostly fighting off the Cloudy Water of Doom caused by tons of dust, lots of kids (who claim they never pee in the pool) and so on. Getting better every year. Excited this year to be assaulting my brand new larger pool with a 3/4 HP sandpump. Pool gets delivered next week - we're all psyched!
    ------
    My pools:
    2013-15: Intex Quickset 10 ft round + dinky Intex cartridge filters
    Summer 2016: Bestway above-ground 4.12 X 2 X 1.22 meter (13.5 X 6.5 X 4 feet), plus 'Splash' 1/2 HP 3200 gallon sand pump
    Super dusty climate, kids with lots of friends :)

    welcome to TFP

    Congrats on the new pool, now the hard part, finding a test kit.. can you get a taylor K-2006 or the 2006C there, it will help you do the same exact test we talk about.

    That is going to be a nice size pool, congrats

    Markups here on American products can be extreme (for example, I'd love the Intex LED fountain. It's about $30 in the US, and the equivalent of $150 here!), but I'm going to try to find something similar...

    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!
