    My Very Own Cement Pond

    Greetings All. Never had a pool other than the ones you blew up and got a hole in it on the first day. First impression of the forum: lots of solid, healpful advice for folks new to pools as well as a place for folks to dive in deeper. The pool school section looks like a gold mine. It's been 25 years since I took advanced water chemistry (never used it) so that part will be fun. I'm a stay-at-home dad so the pool will be another kidd to look after.

    I posted a photo of my new pool "shell " in the under-construction section.
    Cheers - Taz

    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!
