    Newbie hello from Iowa :)

    Hi all,

    I found this site a couple of days ago and can't stop reading

    I only have an Intex 16'x48" Ultra Frame pool. Someday I hope to have a "real" pool!!!

    I just can't say Thank You enough for this site!!! I've have learned so much in the past two days!!! I even told my SIL about this site. She is renting a house that has a inground 20x40 pool! (I'm just a little bit JEALOUS!!!)

    I'm learning so much! And loving it!

    You pool is real enough for us...welcome!

    Many of our members have temporary pools, and the same principles apply: frequent, accurate testing and understanding what to do with those numbers. We even have a section in pool school just for temporary pools.

    Great photos! I've stood in that very spot before.

    We have a couple of those fish! A girl and a boy GK's. They'd sleep in it if we'd let them.
