    New to the forum

    Hi, what a great resourse this site is. I am a new pool owner, new home owner and new dad. What a year... I never owned a pool before and I'm learning as I go, More or less I am a DYI guy. When we bought the house I did pay (probably over pay) for a new liner, but lessons learned. I'm sure to be here a lot.

    Welcome!

    Nice pool. We'll help you keep it looking like that.

    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!

    Re: New to the forum

    Thanks guys! Like I said I am still learning as I go. I'm gonna invest in one of the recommened test kits. Last year I did a weekly trip to pool company and just the test strips. I kept up on it and it went good. Closed it myself last year and just opened it a few days ago, all went well. Just read BBB and going to make the switch. I have some questions about coping repair/replace but I will make a new post for that.
