    Anybody Not From Texas?

    Yes - another Texan. I thoroughly enjoy the TFP site and have been using it for the past several months. Our pool is new (1 year) and I already have switched to liquid chlorine via a Stenner pump/7.5 gal tank which has only been in operation for 3 days but seems to be doing all it is supposed to. I'll post more about it when it has been on line for awhile. Look forward to all of your comments and help

    Well, you know what they say... if you're not from Texas, you're from somewhere else!

    My FIL, who loved his adopted state (he was born in Tennessee, but moved to Texas when he was a boy), loved to tell this joke.

    Never ask a man if he's from Texas. If he is, he'll let you know. If he's not, well, you don't want to embarrass him.

    To the OP. Beautiful pool. I'd love to see pics of your stenner setup. I'm considering doing this myself.

    Will do. It was really very simple. I am still playing with how much chlorine to add daily. Right now I am at .25 gal/day and I am algae free but I think I'll have to up it to be certain.
