    Noobie from Co.

    Just set up our first pool, oh boy am I confused. Read and re-read pool school.
    Everyone I speak with has a different opinion.
    It appears there is a great amount of info here. Just don't laugh too hard when the stupid questions start coming.
    The wife wanted a pool for exercise.
    I think its a ploy to lure the grandkids over.
    Looking forward to learning.

    That's one good thing about this forum. 90% of the info all will tell you the SAME thing. Test with a good kit often, only add what you MUST add, know what each dose of chemicals will add to your pool, test once again.

    Welcome to the site!!! Ask away!
