    New pool owner

    Hi there! We are Max and Cryssie, newlyweds and new above-ground pool owners. We were lucky enough to come across the BBB method as we were setting up our pool and for the past 3 months, we have had zero issues. It's so simple! But we are encountering other little issues and thought we should probably seek advice from outside of the pool companies. Looking forward to the advice!

    Re: New pool owner

    Hello and welcome! TFP is a relatively simple process of maintaining your pool with minimally invasive products – things you probably already have around your house already. TFP always encourages that you do your own testing via one of the TFP-recommended test kits (i.e. TF-100 link below) since accurate test readings serve as the foundation for everything you do from this point forward and the advice you receive on this site.

    Golden rule - Avoid the pool store for testing, advice, or products. You simply won’t get the advice/service you deserve and you will waste money on products your pool doesn’t need. Do not add anything to your pool other than what is advocated by the TFP site or its experts. You’ll have a happier pool, spend less time maintaining your pool, and probably save some $$ in the process. Please take a moment to read the following short articles from this site that you see linked in my signature below:

    Pool School, Recommended Levels (for YOUR pool), PoolMath Calculator, SLAM, and the Chlorine/CYA Chart - These links will be your handy references with TFP.

    Also, if you haven’t done so already, please verify that all of your pool information is accurate and/or loaded in your “signature” which can be accessed in your TFP profile. That information is valuable to TFP readers as they try to assist you. If you have any more questions, just re-post to this thread or ask. TFP’ers are always eager to assist. Have a great swimming season!

    The only thing I can't find is where to add in a signature. I put our pool stats in our biography for a start until I can find the signature line

    From the Home Page at the top, click on "Settings", then on the next page look on the menu to the left. You should see "Edit Signature".
