    Greetings and THANK YOU from Alabama

    There is no way I can express how grateful I am to this forum and its members. Because of you, I have turned my backyard disaster into the neighborhood paradise.

    “You can keep the house” meant that I unexpectedly became the owner of a 6 year old 10,000 gallon in-ground fiberglass pool. My instructions consisted of a list of websites to order Polaris parts when it stopped working and the location of the pool store if I had any questions. Since then, I have experienced about every catastrophe possible – some of which I caused; some I didn’t, but thought I did. However, I have emerged as a darn good water chemist and equipment tech. My goal now is relaxing and enjoying what I have rather than obsessing and striving for the perfectly balanced water. All the credit goes to this community, though. Without you, I would still be scared and frustrated with my fiberglass pond.

    Sounds like you will soon be enjoying your pool instead of fretting more maintenance and water balance issues.

    Thank you for the welcome!

    The only recent picture I have on this computer (I'm at work ) is one I took while I was working on my landscaping, so I apologize for all the limbs on the deck. When I get some better ones, I'll post them.

    I'm still learning how to add attachments, so in case it didn't work, here's the link to it...
