    cateng

    This is a very helpful forum. I have been on for two days now and have learned a lot. I am an electrical engineer for an aluminum cable manufacturer, hence the name cateng. I am a huge kentucky wildcat bb fan so that is where the cat part comes from. My new wife and I just purchased a house in January that has a 20,000 gallon inground pool with liner. I know nothing about pools so I will be very reliant on this site. I love being outside and creating things with my hands so I am very excited about making improvements around the pool. Aside from being an engineer I also do woodworking on the side, mainly finish work (cabinets, furniture, trim, etc).

    Welcome to the site cateng. I won't hold the Kentucky thing against you if you can look past my passion for the Tarheels.

    In my opinion, this site is where it's at when it comes to keeping your pool in tip-top shape.

    Congratulations on the new house and pool. Don't forget to post a pic of the pool.

    I'm also an EE and huge UK fan. I doubt this year will be much fun, but maybe we'll see some basketball the next year.

    Welcome cateng!
    I lived in Owensboro when I was about 5 yrs old. I remember going to the hydroplane (boat) races on the river. My biggest thrill was seeing the "Miss Budwieser" boat race. Easily entertained back then (early 70s).
