    I don't need help yet but wanted to say hi

    located in the Desert Southwest Area of the United States and looking forward to soak up and help with more information. I have owned pools for over 33 years and always managed to figure most problems out. The one problem I have now is my cool decking is coming up
    Thanks
    12k gal Gunite/Hayward filter C5520BH with quad 33 inch filters. 2.5 hp motor. Pool is on south side, so full sun light. Spill over spa.
    Laar's heater LT250-Low NOx Gas Fired for pool/spa 250,000 BTU. Roof mount 6 panel solar system installed east/south. TF-100 test kit. May-September 100+ degrees out side.

    Welcome to the forum!

    You have come to the right place to "soak up" pool-related information.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Welcome!

    And let me be the first to say, "Can you post a full set of test results?"
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Indeed we are Mark! Sorry it didn't register straight away.

    Good to see you over here!!! This is almost the pool version of TRF. Lots of good people here and a whole lot more good info. I'm a little surprised so few responded about their pools over there, but hey, it isn't the pool time of year. The funniest comment though was someone saying "They have Pool Forums?" Everyone over here will be stunned and ask the same about watch forums. But hey, if 100 people are interested in it, there's a forum for it.
    Glad you made it over!!
