    Greetings from Johannesburg South Africa

    I've been trolling for a while now but rather casually. I decided to step up and become a fully fledged Member.

    Why join? I've been a pool owner for almost 6 years now but inherited a 20-30 year old body of water. 6-7 Weeks ago we bit the bullet and renovated. Now I'm paranoid as **** and want to do things right.

    What I hope to learn: the do's and don'ts you can't learn from the back of a chlorine pack. :P

    Likes: coffee, cars, home theatre, movies, coffee, Apple, WiFi, PC gaming

    Dislikes: Kreepy Kraulies, people who turn out of straight lanes, rude people, being a corporate slave

    My own areas of expertise: computing, hardware, software, WiFi

    A few quick notes - we use the metric system here ie. metres, litres. Spelling is also UK based. I'll convert to gallons where applicable but the other things will remain (and perhaps irk some). :P

    Welcome.

    Metric may irk some but go ahead and post everything metric if you'd like. Most of us can make the conversion easily enough. Even the pool calc has a metric mode. I'm in the minority that think the US should have gone metric 40 years ago when the push came along.
