    Talking Hi from a new pool owner

    Just wanted to introduce myself. A few weeks ago we bought a house with a 20,000 gallonish in-ground vinyl pool. Before we even moved in I found this site and ordered my TF-100 and speedstir so I could start off right! I also keep saltwater reef aquariums, so water testing is a pretty normal thing to me. I spend a lot on the right test kits for my reef, figured I'd spend what I needed for something my family and friends will be immersing themselves in. Anyway things are going decent so far. The previous owners used trichlor, so the CYA is a little high at around 70-80. At some point I will do a partial drain, but right now I'm just following the chart and keeping my FC at 9. Pool had a small bit of algae when we took possession of the house, but did a SLAM and it's algae free now, and looking great. I'm sure I'll screw something up at some point though and be on here looking for advice soon enough!

    If you can keep saltwater fish alive I am sure you will have no problem keeping the pool clear, having the test kit before you got the house speaks volumes.
