I thought I would go first. For those of you who don't know me, my name is Sean (duh) and I am the site admin here.
Like many of you, I am also a new pool owner. This year will be our first full season with a pool and my family and I can't wait. Also, like a lot of you, I am still learning about pool care and chemistry. You'll probably see me give more advice about how to smoke a brisket than you will how to maintain pH. Although I'll share whatever limited knowledge I have.
I'm kind of a forum nut so it was a natural fit for me to start this site. Aside from personal experience, I think learning from others experience is one of the best ways to learn. As far as the other reasons for starting this site, well... there has already been enough about that in other posts. 8)
My family and I (wife and 3 kids) live in Missouri City, Texas - a Houston suburb. I'm not a native Texan, but like the saying goes...I got here as fast as I could.
I have worked as a Process Technician in a chemical plant for the past 9 years. I work shift work which is why you may notice the occasional post from me at 3 AM. You were probably thinking I am just super dedicated, but no, I just have a lot of free time (usually) when I'm working nights.
I'm learning about running a website and things like html as I go along. Your patience and encouragement in this endeavour has been great.
Anyway, that's about all for now. I've thoroughly enjoyed meeting some of you already and look forward to getting to know many more.
