    Hello from Northeast PA

    Hi all what a great web site! I am an inground pool owner for over 25 years, and reading your information makes me feel like I am in first grade! I have learned so much already. I came upon your site with a cloudy pool situation, and I am waiting for my professional Taylor test kit to arrive to post my problems. Be back soon!

    Welcome!

    And congratulations on your new purchase. You'll have the cleanest pool ever this season and kick yourself for taking so long to find this place.

    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!

    New here myself Liberty Square. Ages ago I resided in Newton NJ, or northwest Jersey. Beautiful country thereabouts, particularly on the PA side.

    Anyway these folks make a person feel very welcome, and are, ahem, swimming in pool related answers. Best wishes...

    Welcome Liberty! How's the pool coming along?
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
