    looks like theres a big online community here. is it a mix of private pool owners and pool industry workers? mainly usa based?

    Re: hello everyone

    Biggest pool forum on the web

    Biggest demographic are pool owners who maintain their own pools. We do have a smaller group of folks in the industry that frequent the forums and help out here and there answering questions.

    Much of the focus of the forum is pool chemistry, though we get into equipment and pool design a fair amount too. Just a heads up...what works for pool owners who maintain there own pools daily is often quite different than what works for a pool service which sees the pool weekly (or even bi-weekly).

    Mostly we have members that are private pool owners from the US and Canada, but we do have members world wide, and a light mix of "in the industry" people ranging from manufacturers to pool store owners and service personnel.

    A lot of the Canadian post do involve the use of heaters of one type or another.
