    New to forum and BBB

    Hey everyone...I am a fairly new pool owner (about 2 years). It has definitely been an experience and I have learned a lot thanks to this site (been lurking for quite some time). I have just recently switched to the BBB method from the tabs. My new test kit (TF100) will be here this next week and I am excited to look at some readings besides FC and PH that I've been doing up until now. I also started getting the refillable hasa chlorine bottles from a local pool store for (.21/scl) my bleach method. I will post some pictures as I get my yard more cleaned up but I look forward to learning more and asking lots of questions and maybe even answering some once I get more proficient at this crazy thing called "pool ownership."

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
