    I'm a retired high school chemistry teacher in Brookfield Connecticut. We have a 20 year old 21x41 in ground vinyl pool with a hayward pump and de filter and an aqua comfort heat pump. I've been getting away from the pool store analysis and recommendations for a while and am happy to have found TFP. The pool math calculator and the recommendations for the tf100 test kit and stirrer are great!

    Welcome aboard!

    Retired from chemistry myself... well, to be honest, career just went in other directions. Still employed otherwise.

    Good luck (you won't need it) and happy reading!
