    Thanks Everyone

    Bought a house with a pool last Nov, it is our first pool. Hired a local company to open and found a swamp!! under the cover. Pool guy (after adding a bunch of shock) told me to run the filter until the water cleared LOL. No testing and he told me not to bother adding any more chems until water was clear!!! After 2 days of no improvement I started to read this forum and went to "pool school" through this site. Decided to go with BBB and after much hard work and effort I have a beautiful clear pool to enjoy with family and friends.

    Thanks much to all the posters that got me through this!!!!!!!!

    Time to get that TF100 testkit or taylor k2006...either would do fine if you don't have one already. Regular testing is how we keep the beast from acting up

    In the Pipeline a small deck off the slider, stamped concrete from the deck to the fence over by the gate,tiki bar on the patio, a fountain in the right corner, and a pool shed on the pad next to the filter. Do not know how much we will get done this year, but hope to have the deck and pool house by fall closing.
