Hi Everybody - wanted to introduce myself as I'm sure I'll be asking lots of questions. I have a new IG spa that we installed as part of a total backyard makeover (cabana with double sided stone fireplace outdoor kitchen, etc...). I was the 'pool boy' for our family pool back in the late '70s/early '80s, but haven't given any of this much thought in the past 35+ years. While some things haven't changed much (DE filters seem pretty much the same), a lot has changed - pool chemistry is a whole bunch more complicated (I used to pretty much pour jugs of hydrochloric acid and chlorine into the pool weekly), valves magically move by themselves, electronic control systems, and SWGs!
I fired the pool guy after about 1 month, and plan to go it pretty much alone. Waiting for my Taylor testing kit to arrive today.
Thanks in advance for your patience and help
