Hi all, we moved to our new house in Virginia this summer; with a pool of course. I deployed to Afghanistan just a few weeks after making the move so I didn't get much of a chance to enjoy the water. We are first-time pool owners and didn't know any better so the pool folks have been taking care of things this season. I found the forum a couple weeks ago and am looking forward to taking care of things as soon as I get back. I am trying to read and learn as much as possible during down time over here, it really is great to be able to think about the house and the pool.
I am a fairly handy person and, with the knowledge and advice here, I feel like the pool will be very manageable. I will order a test kit and have it ready before I get home. I will also take some of my deployment money and buy a robot as a 'family' Christmas present. Thanks for such an amazing forum.
