    A welcome find in the information desert

    After enduring all the misinformation from "experts", I accidently found this site while ordering a replacement pump motor. I'm looking forward to getting educated. I'll just be reading for a while before asking any questions.

    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!
