I’ve been lurking here for the last month or so and thought it was way past time that I introduce myself.
My wife and recently had a pool installed and I decided that I wanted to learn how to care for the pool rather than go to a pool store and buy whatever they suggested (can you imagine buying a car, or even groceries that way?) This was the first site I found that really described the pool chemistry in a way that I could understand (i.e. simple) and provided a place to ask questions and receive answers (from nice people!) to the odd questions that arise from time to time.
Thank you to the site owner, administrator, moderators, and all the users of the site for making it such a valuable resource.
