    Another new guy from VA

    Hello all, new guy here.

    We have a 42" 15' (14'?) inflatable ring pool in the yard currently. I upgraded to a sand filter & larger pump last year,and haven't regretted that. I also learned the hard way that the little yellow & red test kits from Wally World don't give nearly enough information. In years gone by with this and our previous pool (similar but smaller) the water inevitably got cloudy & I'd end up draining & refilling. This year it's so far so good except for the tear in the inflatable ring that occurred last night. I've already posted my fix in an inflatable ring deflation thread, I'll post results there once the glue dries. We also have a small hot tub out there, it's old but still kicking. It rarely gets used though.

    Well, I'm off to look around the forums some. See you 'round the boards!
