    New From NC

    Hi Everyone!

    I have been reading on here for about a week, trying to make sure I am setting up my pool correctly! AND I just ordered my TF100 test kit a few minutes ago. My pool isn't all the way up yet (AG 18'x48") but should be by tonight. I am calling the pool water guy in about an hour to set up a time when he can come out and fill 'er up. I should have been taking pictures of the backyard during all of this, but I think I don't want to remember this later on! What a muddy mess I have right now.

    About me......Married mother of 2, son 16 and daughter 12. My daughter keeps telling me, "it doesn't have to be perfect mom, let's get this thing done!" Oh I should show her the pics of some of the pools on here!

    You guys are already helping me without even knowing it, so thanks already!

    Hope to meet you all soon,
    Lori

    Hi Lori!

    Welcome to TFP!! These guys and girls here are great!! Once you get your TF-100 do a complete test and post your results here and we'll help you get going.

    I have learned so much, but still learning.
