    Hi from Bakersfield CA!

    Hey All!

    Been lurking for about a year when we bought our house in Bakersfield CA with a 32,500 gal PebbleTec pool. Since then have replaced most all of the pool equipment and built/added an automation system based on Z-wave. I'm a former Air Force officer, PhD chemist/materials engineer. Love the forum and am looking forward to actually contributing for a change

    Always nice to have another chemist around when the science behind our system is challenged.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
