I, like many others only seem to find these sites after getting miffed at the cost of Pool chemicals from the Local Pool store.
But before I get to all that, my name is Mike, I live in Toronto, Canada and I have a 16 x 32 kidney shaped Vinyl inground pool that is 75000 Litres which would be about 19790 US Gallons.
My wife and I have lived at this house for 2 1/2 years. We have enjoyed the pool immensely. I get stuck with all the chores for it though.
We have had some plumbing type problems in the past, leaks, pump priming etc. , of which I have learned about and repaired by myself, except for the leak last year that caused us to loose about 2 inches a day. That was repaired by a scuba dude.
Now however, I have green and cloudy water. The LPS (local pool store) said try this(Bioguard Burnout ), try this (bioguard Erase),then this (Biogaurd Power Floc) etc. then $120 later I still have a green and cloudy pool.
So here I am, looking for help, trying to save money, reading lots and learning.
I have already read a bit on the Forums and I am researching as much as I can.
I look forward to talking with all of you, learning more about pools, saving money and enjoying my pool.
