    Pool Newb, so happy to have found this forum!

    Greetings from Atlanta, GA. I am 1 year into my first stab at pool ownership and have been working to maintain the pool myself. All has been pretty good, but questions/problems do come up. In my most recent search for a reputable chemical test kit, I found this forum and am blown away at the amount of amazing information here!

    In reviewing "Pool School", I've already identified several areas where I need to "tune" my maintenance procedures. I'll definitely be posting questions here in the future.

    Thank you so much for maintaining such a great environment for us "trying to be do-it-yourselfers"!

    Sincerely,

    Wayne

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