I just wanted to introduce myself to this forum. I just want all of you active participants, especially you moderators and administrators that this forum is awesome and I thank you for it! I have owned a house with pool for a year and had a pool guy taking care of it. Inevitably, I discovered that he was terrible and consequently
I think I have mustard algae in the pool (it sticks to the sides and some of it won't brush off with a nylon/stainless brush, it's yellowish and brownish). I think he just really didn't service my pool and spa at all - what a joke. So on the advice of my wife, I've taken the challenge of maintaining my pool and spa myself. I'm a little OCD so I expect to spend a lot of time here. I have ordered my TF100 test kit so once that arrives I'll post my results. I know that first thing I need to kill off the mustard algae - and I'm sure there's a lot more to be done for both my pool and spa. I just wanted to announce my plunge into pool maintenance and thank all of you involved in this awesome forum!! Thanks!!
