    new to the boards

    Hello all! I decided to jump in..... Been browsing the boards for weeks, loving all the information.... Thanks!!
    Recently having Algae problems, tired of spending so much money and getting no results so i decided to LEARN the process myself! With all of your help of course

    BTW Im in georgia with a 45,000 gal pool..... used to be concrete, then owners converted to vinyl? A huge headache!!! But we are learning...
