    Hello All

    Hi all,

    I registered today because I am going to renovate my pool after 10 years. I will be doing this bit by bit, over a period of a few years. Don't expect me to be a 100% every day looking member of the forums, so if you should need me, pm me. I am 55 years old and studied electronics but not using it actively anymore. My daytime job as a technician is reparing pc's/laptops/ ... . Renovation over the years will be not in right order:
    1) isolating my pool and putting a new liner into it.
    2) automating and renewing solar pool heating
    3) perfectionise and repair plumbing
    4) refresh the deck and pool borders.

    The reason I am here is because I was looking to automize with a Raspberry Pi.

    I hope to learn a lot here and to bring my two cents whenever I can.

    Happy hobby'ing,

    Ronny.

    I know, only I work rather sporadic with Linux, but eventually we'll get where we want to be. I want to do the automatisation myself because of costs. If you look around, the commercial solar steerings with 3-way faucets alone are rediculous expensive. Combine that with the thought "I can do that too, but a lot cheaper and with more possibilities", and we're started.
    Round pool 5.5m diameter, 1.2m deep, Mega pump SS050 (13m/h)
    To be done:
    20m solar heating PE, automatic pool heating
    isolation pool, new liner
    renovation deck

    Welcome Gyro!!! I'm a fellow "geek". Systems analyst, but unfortunately Windows server support, Vmware, and only a little linux. Previously I was an avionics tech in the U.S. Navy for 13 years. Sooo, whatever you come up with I'd be glad to see and hope to replicate I've already started buying more automation than I realistically need, but DIY is much more fun!!!
