    New from NJ. Tired of faking it

    So I have been reading this sight a little for the past few years and have come to the conclusion I had no idea what I was doing. Yes I knew bleach was liquid chlorine. But that was about it. After a horrible year of spending hundreds of dollars and still having a bad pool. Summer 2014. I am all in.

    Welcome to TFP! Congrats!

    Get one of the kits from the Test Kit Comparison, I use a TF100 test kit from tftestkits.net.

    Here are some intro Pool School articles to read while you are waiting for your test kit.

    I was having a hard time at first, it's a lot to digest. Watch a couple of YouTube videos regarding the bbb or tfp method especially if your more of a visual learner

    Whereabouts NJ?
    20k gallon IG vinyl pool.
    Hayward DE filter
    Hayward pump?
    Hayward 200 chlorinator
