    step 2: Get yourself a good test kit...need to break free from strips, oto and pool store readings...believe me, you'll get the hang of it in no time and feel confident about keeping your pool crystal clear.
    step 3; read, read, read
    step 4, ask, ask , ask

    good luck!

    Welcome to the forum. Glad you are here. You can add information about yourself and your pool to your profile and signature. That will put your location up by your name on the left -- we need that sometimes because that gives us an idea of the weather and sometimes particulars about your tap water. In your signature you can add everything you know about your pool -- size, surface, features like spa or waterfall, pump and filter details, and how you are maintaining water now as in using tablets or SWG or whatever.

    If you need help identifying your equipment, you can post pictures. We love pictures.
    23,000 gallon in ground pool with rock waterfall and spillover spa, Aqualink control system, Polaris 380 cleaner, Purex Triton Clean&Clear Plus cartridge filter. Located in The Woodlands, Texas.

    Pool owner since Nov 2008, Trouble Free since April 2009. Happy to help when I can.
