    Hello from Sydney, Australia

    It's great to find a site with lots of useful information about pools!

    I got sick of expecting staff at my local pool shops to be experts...... They know how to sell stuff, but little idea about pools!

    Time to get educated and be my own expert. Great info here.

    Thanks.

    Welcome! And you're right...I'm amazed at how little most of the employees at our local shop know. At least this site can make you confident that you're doing the right thing!

    Thanks all for the warm welcome. If you are interested, I've posted pool photos under The BBB Method forum, subject "Algae Wars".

    Thanks
