Hey all, just wanted to say hello. I'm a new pool owner and also new to the site..we bought a house that had a pool. We weren't looking to have one, but here we are. I already have my test kit and speed stir and through the tutelage and help of my long time friend Smykowski, I already have our pool open. I am currently SLAMing the pool, which to be quite honest is a bit of work, but I look forward to having the chemistry under control. I've been taking pictures and will post them when I have a chance. Just wanted to say hi and I look forward to doing this the opposite of the pool store way!
