I am so grateful to TFP for exactly that, a trouble free pool, my first year out. I am also grateful to the Intex pool owner who posted a recommendation to join TFP immediately, in his review of Intex pools. That is how I heard of you. I opened my pool in May and closed it mid-September, no big issues, no algae, everything ran very smooth. I winterized my pool, and feel confident it will winter well, with guidance from this forum.
My biggest problem was thinking it was much harder than it is! With everyday testing and keeping pretty close to the guidelines set-out by TFP, it has been such a pleasure owning a pool! Thanks again!!
