    Visual Encyclopedia

    After the migration to XenForo one article in Pool School that was Axed was the visual encyclopedia. This was done as the photos were VERY dated and showing their age. Now that things are settling down some I’d like to revamp this page......but I need your help. If you have any photos you feel...

    New Videos from TFP-Help us out some!

    Well you read that right, we need your help, again. One thing Rebecca and I kept asking ourselves over the years was “what’s next?” Where does TFP go from here?

    Green yet again

    Just like last year, and the year before that, and the year before that, I opened our pool to a nasty mess....... Where we are our fill water is VERY high in iron so we used to opt to truck in fresh water each year. This means refilling the pool from over the winter almost always costs us...

    Expenses in 2019

    Raise your hand if you've ever been writing a long post only to have the little one in the other room have to go potty. :sneaky: Raise your hand if upon returning to the computer you've found your middle child has kicked you off the computer and is now watching YouTube. :mad: You now have...

    Flickr pulling a Photobucket

    A few years ago Photobucket blocked just about all photos hosted on its website and really caused a headache for several users on TFP. They’ve since kinda reversed this decision but still there’s some mess that’s been left behind. Today as I was scrolling some news I see that Flickr is also...

    Pool School.........The Book

    TFP's goal is to teach Trouble Free Pool Care to as many pool owners as we possibly can. While PoolMath gives pool owners a tool to maintain their pool, it doesn't give them the knowledge they need. That knowledge is all inside of Pool School. Over the last few months we've been hard at work...
