    New to pools

    Just moved into a new to me home in Boiling Spring SC and it has a 28000 gal in-ground salt water pool. I also made a post in pumping station for help but I hope this thing does not break my bank account and hope the kids love it. Thanks for having me. Richie

    Welcome! If you use the TFP way, you'll be amazed at how inexpensive it can be!

    Welcome to TFP, Richie Sounds like your pool is nicely set up already with the salt water chlorine generator. That's going to make things really easy.

    The most important aspect of keeping your pool inexpensive to run and healthy is to do your own pool testing. Preferably with one of the 2 test kits we recommend (the TF-100 or the Taylor's K-2006) For a pool as large as yours, I'd suggest the TF-100. More bang for the buck.

    I'd also suggest starting to read Pool School, starting with --> ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry

    Holler back with any questions that come up

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