    scudman here...

    Hello one and all. I am new to this forum and sort of new to pools. Actually I had a pool way back in 1976 but I don't remember a lot about it asI had a maintenance company do all the cleaning and dosing. Anyway I am going to build my own pool at a new house I am building here in Thailand. I know some of the construction techniques are a bit different here, but plumbing and pool chemistry is the same as everywhere I imagine. I have lots of questions so I hope to get some answers and also be able to contribute to the forum as well.
    Thanks for having me.
    Pool not built yet: 15K gal, IG Concrete/Tile, Perimeter Edge, Balance Tank, Diamond Kleen Filter, SWG, spec'd so far.
