    First time pool owner from DFW, Texas

    Hi everyone!

    Just wanted to say, "Hi" and introduce myself as I'm sure, as a first time pool owner, I'll be learning a lot and asking a lot of questions from the group here. The engineer in me is excited about all this equipment! Hopefully with your help I can learn all about these systems and give back to the community.

    Our pool is scheduled to be finished next week, just in time for winter!! At least I can try out the spa. I'm told since it's a pebble pool it'll (probably) only take a few days before we can get in the pool rather than a few weeks. Not holding my breath, but I hope that's accurate!

    Here's the design:



    Thanks for the great community you have here!

    Looks very nice. Don't forget to have your proper test kit on-hand as soon as water goes in. I always recommend the TF-100 (link below). You'll want to watch those levels close - especially in a new pool as it cures. Congrats!
