I used the gardenweb site a number of years ago when doing our DIY inground pool so still stop by there from time to time to review and respond to posts ( although they dont seem to get much traffic lately). Was kinda interesting to read someones post who was butthurt because not everyone here believes UV sanitation is the end all-be all for pools. Turns out they are a PB that pushes UV and believes SWGs have too many downsides compared to UV (I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion?)
They made A number of misstated comments about this site which I posted a reply to indicate were not factual (as did a number of other TFP members did before me).
Personally, I dont think Ive found a site more dedicated to teaching owners how to manage their pools or address problems that have them stumped to the direct benefit to the poster with zero strings attached or monetary gain by the site owner. What a great community of pool enthusiasts we have here!
