    Hi Everyone,

    Just finished a new build in September; I'm a total novice and know nothing other than what I've learned here at TFP. I've been lurking awhile, and I'm really impressed with the knowledge and quality of the site!

    Thanks,
    Don

    I have the TF100 test kit. I think I have mastered most of the measurement techniques, except the color matching on the pH test, and identifying when the "spot" is actually gone in the CYA test. Those seem like the most subjective tests, but I think I can do them with acceptable accuracy for now, and I should improve with practice. I have managed to keep everything in the "recommended" levels on the pool calculator, not too bad for a beginner

    I have been reading up on the pool school as well. I do have a few questions, but nothing urgent, I'll ask them later one by one as needed. The pool school was pretty complete, nice job!

    Thanks,
    Don
