    Cool DocBennett checking in from FL

    I am already super impressed with the resources and community here. I'm not sure of his username, my a friend of mine suggested this site the second I told him our pool was finally installed.

    My wife and I had an IG SWG pool installed over the last few months. It was, of course, only a 4-6 week job that ballooned to 15 weeks, not surprised I guess. In the end, we're super happy to finally have a pool. We have a three-year-old and swimming is great physical therapy for my wife. We'll be using it A LOT.

    I don't know how much I'll crawl the forums but I'll be around to get the great advice and information provided here often.

    Welcome to TFP!

    +1 to what Kim suggested about getting a good test kit. It's the best first step you can take towards managing your pool.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
