Hello fellow pool owners.
My name is quite obviously Sonya. I'm not great at coming up with creative user names, so Sonyak will have to do. LOL
I live in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. Yes, it's cold here right now. No snow yet, but it's about 5 degrees above freezing, so in my books, it's close enough.
I recently tore down my old bungalow to build a new wheelchair accessible house for my 11 year old son.
The new house comes complete with an indoor therapy pool and spa, which has made my son incredibly happy.
While I am new to an indoor pool, I am not new to owning a pool.
I grew up with a pool, and the task of maintaining it was mine alone. I didn't do a bad job, for a kid who was between the ages of 10 and 16 at the time.
We have yet to move into our new house, and the pool is not completely functional yet, but I have started my research into proper pool maintenance early, to ensure we have a "trouble free pool" from the get go.
I just ordered the TF100 test kit, and should be receiving it before the end of the month, which is convenient, since that's when we're expected to move into the new house. I'll probably need some help with the chemistry side of things, and understanding how to make sure the pool is well balanced, etc, but I guess that's what you're all here for...
Thanks for "listening", and I hope to "talk" to some of you soon.
