    Just Thanks

    Hey all. Just a quick note to say thanks to everyone who created, moderates and uses this site. I found this site last year when I was struggling with my new pool and have visited often since. This year I quit being stubborn and purchased recommended tester. What a difference that made. My water is looking great. I haven't posted before this because, frankly, I didn't need to. Every question seems to have been asked and answered over the years. I do have one complaint though. You guys and some of your ideas such as hard plumbing the Intex, sand filters, rain returns, in-wall skimmers are causing crazy thoughts in my head. If I am not careful, I could do some serious damage to the wallet.

    Thanks again though. I love this site.
    Butch

    With all the money you save on chemicals, you'll still come out ahead.
