    Hi, new here

    I came here from another board because although I learned a tremendous amount, I could not post!
    I have a 24ft Intex easy set pool, hayward 20inch sand filter/1HPhayward powermax pump. ( Yes, I know I have more filter/pump than pool, but it is CLEAN!) After spending 2 summers cleaning more than swimming I invested in a real pump/filter. Planning on using it on a 24-30ft AG as soon as our new house is complete.I just recently got all my levels good after having the "spring pea soup start up issues", and may have questions. I use BBB, so not too complicated.
    Hurricane Rita did not kill me, but she killed my pool!

    Intex 36'X18'x52" "elliptical pool"/ Hayward 220 filter/1HP pump 14,364 gal, or so

    Hi and welcome to the group! Many of the people here are also regulars at that "other forum".
    This is an offshoot of poolforum mainly because nobody new can post over there anymore and Sean was a peach to start this up. He's done a great job. A lot of the actual members and pros from poolforum also help out here.

    You sound like you're already an expert. Smart thinking, getting a better filter and pump. So jump right in and help.

    Thanks! I am by no means an expert, what I know I learned from pool solutions and the poolforum. I just wish I could post there.

    Welcome to TFP Ebdson. If you can test your own water and know what to do with the results, you're close to being an expert!
