    macdirk

    Hello all,
    New to forum. IT guy by trade, but bought a pool business in Phoenix AZ about 10 years ago. Came across this site while researching Bio Active CYA reducer a few days ago. Found a lot of interesting and helpful info browsing around, so decided to join. Looking forward to using site as a reference and help others where i can.
