    New to Pools in Charleston, SC

    So glad to find this website!

    I bought my above ground, 24 ft round pool mid summer last year. I spent hundreds of dollars, weekly trips to the pool place taking in water samples, purchasing multiple chemicals and other assorted additives only to figure out that I was making it much too complicated.

    This spring, I was directed to this site by a friend at work, have stocked up on the three B's and am hopeful that I will have a much more relaxing and enjoyable summer in the pool - and crystal clear water to go with it!

    Thanks for the wealth of information!

    Once you get used to the methods and testing yourself -you will save TONS of money. I normally only spend about 35 bucks a pool season on chemicals. Make sure to get a good test kit.. If you have questions--there are plenty of people to help on this forum.
