    Hi All....From the UK

    Ok, so here I am, thought I'd say hello. Not sure how many other Brits there are on here, but just wanted to say that of all the forums that I have scanned this has to be the best one by far. I've learnt so much from reading the posts and have gone as far as importing a Taylor K2006 kit - as it's incredibly (read impossible) to get Taylor kits here in the UK. Sadly I cannot import from the US, so have had to get it from Spain.

    I will be posting my thoughts/questions/rantings/drivel later, but just wanted to thank everyone for their hard work on this forum before I get started.

    Hello richard_s! There are a few folk from the UK on this forum. You're right, this forum is amazing. I've learned so much about pool chemistry here.

    I've been wondering if it might be possible to have a topic UK users where they can talk about buying pool things - that's the part of the advice that doesn't translate from America to England.
