    Just stumbled upon this site and it looks good. Hopefully I'll be able to learn much here and maybe even add something intelligent once in a while.

    I have a small in ground pool in the Central Valley of CA. My pool is a about 5 years old.

    8,500 Gal. IG, Plaster, 2HP Jandy Stealth Pump (pre 2006), Jandy CL580 cartridge filter, 2 24" Jandy Sheer Descent waterfalls, Heliocol roof mounted solar heating.

    You will learn a lot, guaranteed. The learning curve is sorta steep, but that only lasts about 3 weeks, then it's easy. I'll warn you right now that the first time you actually ask anything, your first reply will ask you, "Can you post a full set of test results?"

    You will need a test kit to play the trouble-free way. There's an article in Pool School about them. Or just skip that part, go straight to and order a TF100 and a speedstir. Best money you'll ever spend on your cement pond.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    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!
