I've been registered since last year when I bought my house and became a virgin Pool owner. I just want to say thanks to all you pool guru's for providing great info here at TFP. It really helped me out understanding pool care. I made it throughout the pool season last year with only one very small algae bloom which I took care of in a matter of days. Stumbling upon this forum really helped me in my first year as a pool owner. I also bought the TF100 Kit last year, which was essential to my first year.
Here is a couple of pics of the pool from last summer after getting everything stable. It's a Carlton Pool (Lake Shape) it's 36,000 gal. and in overall decent decent shape. Although, I did have the typical staining issue many have had with grey streaks which seem to come and go depending on temperature and/or pool chemistry. I also have Well water which if I remember correctly might have somethign to do with it. But that's for another thread
