    New Pool Owner

    Hello. We bought a house back in November and the previous owner turned me on to this site. I've been reading and will probably begin posting questions very shortly.

    I've ordered my Taylor K-2006 test kit, which should be here Friday and have taken off the cover and began filling it. Hope to have it filled by tomorrow.

    Looking forward to all the advice and interactions on here.
