    Hello all the way from Kuwait

    Hello everyone, just jumped aboard last night. I am a complete newbie, guess have to start somewhere and mine was the kids pool, a small 1550gal vinyl pool. I made sure though to buy the sand filter and SWG, the shop said it was over kill, but I went and bought them. After all, those are kids who will be playing in it (can't go cheap on kids).

    Just wanted to thank everyone for their help on my post, you're the best, and I thought it would be appropriate to say it here

    This just reminds us what a small world this can be. I spent a few months in Saudi myself. Hope the area is treating you well. Always good to hear that TFP has made a positive impact on another pool owner. Don't forget to add a customized signature in the future with all of your pool info. Post some pics one day as well. Take care.

    CYA zero? I'd be getting some CYA in there and some chlorine asap otherwise you may be facing a SLAM. Hazy water is not a good sign!
