    Hello....newbie here and to owning a pool.

    We installed a pool last year, completed it on the 4th of July, and took the first swim on the 6th.
    I didnt find this site until after I closed up, which after reading on here I know I didn't do properly.
    I really want to open the pool this year properly, and use the BBB method. Last year was such a battle with chemicals and algae and trying to get it all right that I was glad to close.
    I'm gonna keep reading around here like crazy, but I know I'll have a million questions, so bare with me.
