    Hello from Northwest Alabama!

    I just wanted to drop in and introduce myself. My name is Adam and I just this month bought a house with a pool. I was really worried about the cost of the upkeep but after going through this forum for a week now I am beyond relieved. I am so glad that all the folks here have put in so much time and energy for a great resource that everyone can use. So far the pool is clear and the numbers are good except for the CYA. It is at zero but getting some conditioner today to try and get that rectified. Thanks so much guys!

    Awesome, here are some of my fave Pool School articles in case you missed any of them.
    TFPC for Beginners
    ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry

    Here are the Recommended Levels for your pool.
    Here is the Water Balance for a saltwater pool.
    Here are the Recommended Pool Chemicals and how to add them.
    Use PoolMath to figure out how much to add.
