    Hello there

    My name is Bee from Sacramento. Stumbled upon this forum while trying to find information on how to shock a pool. Can definitely admit it is extremely overwhelming information so I am hoping I can figure this out. I lost my pool guy so I have to at least figure out how to do this on my own while in search of someone else Hello everyone!

    Welcome to TFP!

    It seems like a lot at first, but once you get going it is really very simple. I had to read it all 30 or 40 times to get it figured out.

    First, you need a good test kit. I use the TF-100 from TFTestkits.net. Here is why it is the best value, Pool School - Test Kits Compared

    Welcome to TFP! I also recommend the TF-100 with "Speed Stir". Nice to have you with us.
