Howdy ya'll. Yep, another Texan (for those of you that keep track of these things). New pool owner now for 2 months. Mama wanted a pool to play in this summer. The kids and I got her one for Mother's day. Didn't have a clue about how to properly maintain it. I found Ben's site and read and studied every topic that he had. It has worked like a charm.

I looked at several pools before deciding on the Intex. I liked the easy set up and take down feature. I figured that if it didn't work out, it would be easy to dispose of. Mama is pleased with the results and now I can add pool boy to my resume. 8)

Thanks to all who patiently post replies to all the questions.
