    New Pool Owner

    Hi Everyone, I am a new homeowner and a new pool owner. The house came with a 27' round above ground pool. I believe the walls are steel (very much a noob). I am looking forward to learning a lot of stuff here to get my pool perfect and ready to open for the summer.

    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!
