I would say I discovered this site a bit late, should have Goggle it a long time ago.
Anyway, I am based in Jakarta, Indonesia. To those with lesser world geography knowledge, Bali is just a small part of my country. This is a tropical country with 2 seasons only, hot or raining...
I have a pool that I use for dive training and for my kids. When it was build, I do not get involved at all, I don't care.
I hardly even swim once a month.
In Feb 2007 and only when pool is 4-6 months old, there was a big flood and my pool was flooded. I personally clean the pool with lots of soap...bubble bath...ha ha ha.... and anti bacterial clearners. Then came the people ( the staff ) that sold me the filter system to treat/fix the water after it was re-filled. From there, I was trying to understand the definition of sanitizer and filtration system because I was concerned that the flood may brought disease.
The more I learn of sanitizers, pool chemistry and all the fun part of maintaining a pool....I got hooked. I felt so good when I can make my pool water as clear as I possibly can and I mean sparkling clear.
I used to be a dive instructor and I have logged more than 3 thousand of dives. I been to dive spot ( sea ) where the water visibility is 40 meters or more and I can't help thinking how powerful mother nature filter system is.... :P.
I find it a challenge if I can make my pool that clear or better if I can....but it is not easy so far.
I will list my equipment in another post, I can't remember the model number.
For now, just a hello to everyone.
