    Jim - Nebraska

    Hi All -

    New pool owner and excited to be getting along with it.

    My son (engineering student) calculated our free form vinyl lined in ground to be 12,000 gallons.

    We have been fighting cloudy since opening but generally can see the bottom of the pool. I have a walmart test kit and have been diligently working to get my readings inline and have fallen into the trap of over-compensating and bouncing my numbers around. I am certain that admitting my problem is the first step

    So hello from Nebraska and I will be back with some questions once I finally get done reading everything and then trying about a dozen things. Oh.. and after buying a decent test kit.
