    Pool N00b from Cabot, Vt

    Hi there,
    I am a total pool n00bie and this year my wife came home with an 18' x 48", 7500 gal. Intex "easy" set pool.

    We have had little splashy pools for the kids before, but nothing that actually took a filter and pump and leveling, etc.

    Living here in VT, we don't have a very long summer, and this year we have been introduced to the great NE rainforest, which I don't remember being on the map!

    Anyway, I am an IT guy and pretty used to troubleshooting and finding great help on boards like this so look forward to all your expertise.

    I am a home brewer, a VW new beetle owner, husband of 23 years, and father of 7, so am kept pretty busy.

    Looking forward to hanging out on a floaty with a home brew if the sun ever comes out before the snow flies.

    Cheers.

    Did you get your super duper test kit yet? The TF-100 or K-2006 are linked to in my signature. Trust me, they will be the best investment you could make.

    Cloudy Pool? 1) Order test kit. 2) Follow SLAM
    New to TFPC? Read Pool School a few times, then post questions. PoolMath will help with chemical additions.
