    jb2u here..new pool owner

    This place is great!!! I see there are so many helpful people here.

    I have a new Oracle 18' X 33' X 52" AGP (filling with water at this moment).

    The TF-100 is on the way...I think it will be here tomorrow or the next day.

    I am excited about taking "control" of my own pool chemistry. I plan on using the BBB method!!

    Welcome! I see you're off to a quick start, with the test kit already on its way.

    Test carefully, add only what's needed, and don't be seduced by the pool store and you will have a clear sparkling pool that will be the envy of the neighborhood, all summer long.

    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!
