    New pool owner in sunny San Diego

    Howdy! New member and new pool owner. Just had the existing pool on our new (to us) house resurfaced and equipment replaced as the whole lot as at the end of its useful life. Starting from scratch and remembering how I maintained a pool as a chore when I was 14 has only gotten me so far! I stumbled across TFP googling around for pool chemistry/dosing info and let me tell you, this site is going to save my sanity! I've learned quite and bit and just ordered a TF100 so I can get a handle on things. My basic test kit and assortment of bags of fancy chemicals from the local pool store didn't fill me with confidence. TFP has and I'm grateful for it! Pics once I get things a bit more in shape!

    After! Much better. Should be turning on the IntelliChlor next week. Still getting my levels adjusted and getting used to things, which will change after the salt kicks in.
