    a new pool owner in Texas

    Hi Ya'll Ive been lurking here for a few weeks We just bought a new home with a pool...already have my tft100 on the way! back in the 60's Dad built a gunite pool and tought me how to take care of it....testing and yes brushing and vaccuming too.... young slave labor if I remember correctly it was liquid chlorine and muratic acid....boom a clear pool for all those years. the filter was a de that he had me tear apart once a season to clean the crud off the screens
    so fast forward some 55 years later and im now a pool owner...bout 23,000 gals.....pool school looks like what I did back old school style cept for the cya stuff. We move in next week and ill be shutting down the auto chlor puck system....testing and then freakin out bout the cya being too high...We will know Tuesday...fingers crossed!

    thanks guys for a wonderful forum! Wash

    Welcome to TFP!

    Already sounds like your off to good start. Post those test results when you can. Also check out pool school.

    Sounds like you've got a good background and history.. that should help you with getting started.

    Don't fret the CYA too much... just consider what it would cost any normal newbie to get that pool started by going to the pool school. You'll have it figured out and for much less $$, even if you have to drain much of it.
