    Introduction

    Hello all,

    My name is Wendy, and I'm new to pool maintenance. We bought a house a year ago with an in ground pool. We were pretty clueless last year, and I don't want to be that way this summer. I started pool school and plan on trying the BBB method.

    Wonderful! Welcome Wendy to TFP! Make sure to visit all the vital links below in my sig and ensure you have the proper test kit to test the water yourself. I would recommend the TF-100 (link below). Very nice to have you with us.

    Thanks Texas. I've been reading, and I did order the TF-100. Did my first test today, it's a complete mess! I posted (hopefully in the correct place) for advice on what to do.
