    Hi's Natty

    Hello all,
    I am new to pool ownership, I bought a house and I currently am SO LOST...the pressure from everyone for me to get the pool set up is overwhelming. I'm here to gain knowledge and provide assistance when I actually know what I'm doing.

    Welcome to TFP!

    There's a wealth of information in Pool School. Start with the ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry and work your way through some more that are of interest to you.

    Ask lots of questions as they come!

    Welcome to the forum!

    In addition to reading the ABCs article, you will need one of the Recommended Test Kits to properly manage your pool. I use the TF-100 because it's the best value and they have a freshness guarantee. You can order it here: They ship fast - you should have it in your hands in 2-3 days with normal shipping. If you want to really do the right thing, I would order one of these test kits tonight. Do not rely on pool store testing - it is notably inaccurate and they will use those results to sell you all sorts of chemicals you do not need that will cost you way more than this test kit.

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

    Welcome! What type of pool are you setting up? Here's is info on how to set up a signature, so when you ask any questions, everyone will know what type of pool and equipment, etc. you have.

    There's a wealth of info here at your fingertips! It seems a little overwhelming at first, but once you get the hang of it, easy peasy!
