    Hello...

    I Just thought I would post something to get started on this great site. I am waiting for my yard to dry out to get my first pool installed. I have to admit that the whole water chemistry is intimidating, but I have learned a lot by reading the pool school. We are looking forward to getting wet!

    Welcome to TFP!

    It's good that you are reading ahead. You will learn that it isn't very hard, especially once your pool is in and you are able to put things into practice. Be sure to get you a good test kit when the time comes to do so. The TF-100 and www.tftestkits.net is awesome.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
