    New around these parts

    Hi everyone. I live in Gilbert, AZ and am so glad I found this website. I have been struggling recently with algae and trying to keep the pool clear which led me here seeking some answers as to why that might be the case. I have only lived in my current home for 2 years, but the pool itself is about 15 years old. I had been using trichlor tabs as the main form of chlorine (oops!) since moving in, and am currently awaiting my TF100 test kit I ordered to check my CYA levels. I am very interested in seeing the results and getting a better handle on what's going on!

    I look forward to both receiving assistance and contributing as I can here on the forums.

    - Rock waterfall feature
    - Hayward "The Pool Cleaner" vacuum
    - Gilbert, AZ. It gets HOT!

    Ordering that TF-100 was a fantastic move. Nice to have you with us.
