    Hello from Yakima WA

    Hi!

    I bought a house with a pool! Having some challenges (posted about it) but we are going to get this pool going one way or another! I have been reading and reading this site. I am understanding about 30% of it but I think it will start making more sense when I can start applying the knowledge "hands on".

    Anyway, thanks to all of you for your great site and forum!

    Welcome to the forum

    I think the "Daves" may outnumber the "Jasons" now

    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.

    You have to watch us Daves, we're a sneaky bunch. We'll call in reinforcements when you're not looking
