    I'm Back...with a new pool

    Hello all!

    Well, with the help and exposure to TroubleFreePool, the 21' round agp, that we used to own, was great! With our old pool, we ended up going from a solar heater to a heatpump, which worked great. We started off pouring chlorine and added salt for better feel, then went to a full SWG. Our pool really was troublefree! But, now we moved and all our equipment stayed with the old house. We currently have a 33' round agp. It was green upon first opening it a week and a half ago. following the good ol' procedures...simple chlorine has done the trick. It does have a solar heater, which isn't hooked up yet...the water temperature is actually nice. Warm, yet still refreshing...the pool gets full sun. I have just received my new SWG...I'm so excited about getting things running smooth again (no more pouring chlorine). Oh, I'll probably get a level of borates back in the water as well

    So...just a simple thank you is in order to TroublFreePool and all of it's members...it really has developed into the authority in pool care that it was destined to become.

    Congrats & Thank you!
