    I'm a city boy who could barely swim...bought a house with a beautiful pool in the suburbs. I would like to spend a little less and enjoy the pool a bit more while keeping my babies safe. Google led me here over the past 3 years to answer questions but mostly ended up following the pool store's costly advice. Seems like I have to relearn all aspect of pool care each spring (went to pool school last year)

    You're right there on the edge - jump on in!

    Which Taylor test kit do you have? The right test kit makes all the difference.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    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!

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