    New Here

    Just wanted to formally introduce myself. I'm Donna from South LA. We are currently in the middle of our construction. We were pushed back a week due to rain, dig was on Wednesday, April 22nd. Gunite was sprayed on Friday, April 24th. We are now waiting on tile, which is on backorder. Hopefully it will be in today. I'm so nervous and ready to get this job completed so we can start having fun

    Pool will is 16X30 saltwater, Gunite, with 4 ft waterfall, tanning ledge with umbrella sleeve.

    I've been reading, so I'm ready to join to learn and share this experience with all of you!

    Welcome aboard!

    If you know the details of your pool such as size, volume, surface type, filter type, cleaner type, etc. Add them to your signature. Most importantly, get a good test kit! Check out the Recommended Test kits http://www.troublefreepool.com/conte...its-comparison TF-100 is the most widely used here but some prefer the K-2006C.

    Good luck with the build!

    Welcome to TFP. Please do help yourself to a TF100. It will help you keep control of your pool and have It in tip top shape!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

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