    New pool

    I'm totally new to having a pool. My wife and I have been talking about it for years and the time was finally right to have a pool installed. I'm the kind of guy who gets most of my information from the internet. I stumbled across this site and think I've found the site to learn what I need to knew. I just ordered the TF 100 test kit and like the ideas behind BBB. I've been reading over the boards and have learned quiet a bit already, but am sure that I will have plenty of questions as I go along. I look forward to getting to know the whys and why nots of pool maintenance.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
