    Hello from Houston, TX (jeffc2112)

    Hey y'all, happy to have found TFP, the forum, the helpful info, and great people/advice!

    I moved to Katy, outside Houston, last year, and have been challenged with this pool. Seemed to start getting green after just a couple days, and the filters were clogging constantly. Pool store and local pros had no ideas... But the TFP forum knew right away that it was algae clogging the filters and how to fix it. So, I got my test kit ordered, and ready to SLAM it next week. Hope to keep the chemistry correct moving forward, since that is what started my problems a year or more ago...

    Thanks all, great to meet you!

    Katy (Houston, TX) - 15,000 gallon In Ground free form kidney shaped 30'x15' pool with Pebble surface. Spa - 8' round with waterfall. Hayward Swimclear Cartridge filter (not sure which model though - maybe C3025?). Pleatco replacement cartridges x 4, 1.5HP Hayward Century Pump, Hayward Booster Pump (model 6060). Chlorine tab dispenser, which I won't be using. Polaris cleaner. TF-100.
