    Greetings from Winterport, Maine!

    Hi everyone!
    We just put up our first pool this weekend and are still waiting to take our first swim! I'm hoping that's going to happen this afternoon or evening since they're calling for thunderstorms tomorrow and Wednesday. However, I'm waiting on my husband to build my outside steps - he just got back with the lumber! He was supposed to get that done yesterday but you know, Father's Day and all...

    I actually started looking at pools last year and found the TFP website then so I've had a whole year to do my research and I'm so glad I did - it's certainly paying off! And the folks here at TFP have been SO helpful - I can't express how grateful I am! I'm looking forward to continuing to learn and maybe someday I will be knowledgeable enough to help others who are just getting started.

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