    Hello all -
    I'm glad I found this site, and the trouble-free pool method. It's kind of like the paleo diet for pools.

    We bought a house this year with a pool. My wife contracted a pool guy on the recommendation of one of her co-workers. He was the cheapest of the people we found, and we figured we'd use him for the first summer while I learned about the pool, and then I'd take it over. Meanwhile discovered this forum and started researching.

    Well, we got the latest invoice today, and it was $300 higher than his monthly estimate. He has shocked the pool constantly, and charges us for every little thing, including his test strips. We even had a $15 dollar charge for a "rain day". Needless to say, I ordered my TF-100 last night, and I'll be taking over ASAP.

    I'll post a log in the "getting started" section once I get my test kit.

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Seriously, you have to pay extra if it happens to rain? Good riddance and congratulations on taking the first step to being in control of your pool.
