    It's the small things...

    I'm so stinking excited, I got my timer working! Probably no big deal, I'm sure, but I'm glad to be taking some control and hopefully lowering my power bill a TON! I can't for the life of me wonder why the pump was left to run ALL THE TIME. Anyway, I set it to run about 4-5 hours for now and may adjust later on.

    I'm still not sure why the booster pump isn't working, although I haven't really given it a shot yet. May try that this weekend.

    My TF-100 is due to arrive tomorrow! I'm strangely excited about that!!

    I'm learning one small step at a time and they are all exciting. Pool ownership is a real learning experience!

    What is the booster pump for? A pressure side cleaner?

    You would be crazy to NOT be excited about the test kit showing up allowing you to take control and save yourself a lot of hassle and money

    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!

    Truth be told, I still enjoy doing the tests and getting the expected results and I'm 9 years into it.

    I tell all my friends just how much I have learned about the nature of pools and, interestingly, the nature of people, from being on this forum.

    It's exciting to me everyday.....that said, at my age, I am easily entertained
