    Hi from Europe

    Hi TFP world,

    I'm in France and I love your site - full of useful info. Only problem for me, is that a lot of the information is about American equipment and supplies - but the chemistry still works over here.

    I worked for a French pool building company for 4 years and must have made about 45 pools in that time, mostly concrete filled plastic shuttering and liner type. Now I'm a self employed builder, who occasionally does a bit of pool work (including our own pools 4m x 11m and 2.5m x 5m).

    So, any other Europeans out there? Maybe we can start a Euro section, or have I missed a Euro site like this one out there?

    All the best to you all,

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    I would doubt you will find a pool forum this large and active over in Europe. I am not really sure what would be gained by having a special section though. As you said the chemistry is the same and the recommendations are the same. Based on the people we see posting, I think a special section would be kind of a ghost town.

    I've often thought there should be a forum for non-US people. Test kits are different. Regulations restrict the size and strength of bleach. Much of our advice is useless to Europeans, and for that matter, Asians.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
