I live in the North Dallas area and our pool was completed just in time for winter! Our builder was Riverbend Sandler and we had a great experience with them. Not a single complaint.
I've never had a pool before, but I'm determined to manage it myself. My builder offered pool school & chemistry school and I've taken both of those. I'm pretty confused, but I'll learn it.
I have an inline tablet chlorinator and I bought the Taylor K-2005 test kit. I've added 55lbs of Supreme Plus, which was recommended by my builder.
Here are a few pictures. I welcome any recommendations or "must do's" as this is my first pool.
