    Hi, from houston!

    Hello,

    I've had my house\pool for 2 years now. I've previously used a pool guy here in houston but he recently took it upon himself to cut big holes in pool filter basket. So I decided to fire him and figured I'd try saving the $150 a month and do it myself. I'm sure you'll be getting a ton of questions from me shortly.

    Welcome Blackhawk,

    We love helping anyone who wants to learn this stuff themselves, so jump on in. Check out the links in my sig and read the ABC's. Work on Pool shcool from there and let us know when you have those questions. This stuff really is pretty easy and you'll love how nice your pool is when you gain control. You'll also enjoy it more knowing you made it happen. Even more for the fact it took less money.

    Congrats on the kit. You'll be fine. Any questions just ask.
    After a couple of tests you'll see how easy our methods are.
