    Noob from Michigan

    Hello,

    I've been lurking for a little while.

    My wife and I got our pool up and running halfway through last summer after it sat for about 3 years in the house we bought.

    Installed a new liner and equipment and it was good to go.

    I have been reading alot about the BBB method and have my TF100 test kit on order.

    Welcome to TFP

    The TF-100 will be your best friend along with the kind folks here. You won't regret buying it.

    What sort of pool do you have?? Of course, as you know, pictures are always welcome!

    nice job
    haha it looks better in pictures than it actually is.

    thats after a weekends worth of powerwasher and staining it. it was pretty much black before i touched it.

    another issue with the deck is that all the boards butt right up to the top rails, so last fall i had to pull them up to get the winter cover over....will need some rework, but i'm saving that for the fall since its one less thing to worry about right now.
