    Howdy from Georgia

    Not exactly new to pools but don't technically own one either. I've taken over responsibilities of my Mom's pool (and my childhood pool) after my stepdad's passing this past year. For the last three years I've been HOA president in our n-hood and worked with our pool guy for the n-hood pool.

    I'm a Software Engineer but also a very hands on mechanical person. The company I work for specializes in software and control automation for large companies that deal in textiles. One of our bread and butter products is an automated chemical injection system for large washers. Think textile rental, hospitals, resorts, casino, hotels, etc so I know a little about chemicals but more on the software/control side.

    I fixed two Hayward SWG controls last year with some youtube help, our circuits lab at work, and $4 in thermistors. Not to bash local pool suppliers, but one has been giving me a bad experience this year, and we've already been doing some things similar to the TFP way so I figured I should do some investigating.

    This year, I personally replaced our busted pump/motor and multiport on my Mom's pool. Tried rebuilding the pump first but was approaching a negative ROI so I decided to just replace it.

    Anyway, pool's open and looks good, I just want to simplify some things and not rely on a bunch of b/s that my local store has been giving me.

    ~33000 gallon, IG, vinyl pool, 3 1/2 foot shallow with ~10 foot diving well built ~1985. Old Hayward side mount sand filter, with new Hayward Multiport SPX0710X32 replaced 5/2016. Pump and Motor replaced 5/2016 with Pentair WhisperFlo 3/4 HP Fluid End pump (WFE-3 part# 075452 Inyopools) and Century Centurion 3/4 HP motor, B2847.

    Welcome. You've come to the best place on the net to care for a pool!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
