    Newly registered, lurker for a long time.

    24,000 gallon in ground vinyl pool, sand filter, owned it for 18 years now, the pool itself is 30 years old.

    Put my own new liner in this year after a few lousy jobs by contractors. First time ever my liner looks like it fits.

    Going to start using the TFP system with liquid chlorine today.

    Welcome to the active side!

    Congrats doing your own liner, glad it worked for you.

    Since you are wanting to start using the TFPC method, I trust you have either ordered or have on hand one of the recommended test kits? If so, please post a set of results.

    It would help us help you to have your pool info in your signature line, instructions for this are in Pool School.
