    New Pool Owner in Maryland

    Hi everyone. Just moved into a new (to me) home with a 32,500 in-ground gunite pool constructed in 1986. I am new to pool care so am very excited about TFP and all the great advice I have seen so far. I already have a question about a pool return fitting issue that I will post in the equipment forum.

    Welcome. Just a suggestion that you get ahead of the game and order the TF-100 test kit that is linked at the bottom of Patrick_B's signature. It will be required if you want solid help from folks here with your water chemistry.

    Welcome to TFP! Dittos on ordering one of the Recommended Test Kits. I use the TF-100.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
