    Welcome! I'm pretty much in the same boat as you.

    I'm having fun with the chemistry set, too. By the time swim season rolls around, we'll have this down pat!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
