    Greetings from Iowa

    Just wanted to say Hi and tell you all I've been lurking here for a while and decided to come out of the shadows. I have a new 21' AG pool and I love it. My KIds think I'm a god. They like the fact that they can swim whenever they want.
    I used to take care of some pools about 15 years ago so I knew the basics,but the BBB is the only way to go! As long as I stay ahead of the water I see few problems. I look foward to learning more about pools and having some fun doing it and it seems I've found the right place.
    21' Leslies Beachland Ag Pool, 10,000 gallons, professionally installed (best money I ever spent) Hayward 16" sand filter w/Pentair two speed pump Fafco 4x20 solar heater,Aqua Trol RJ. Borates added. Hard plumbed.

    Welcome. You sound like me. I knew the mechanics of pool care from years ago, but the way Ben Powell explained it really clicked and made it simple for me.

    I like your moniker!

    I'm pretty new here, but have received wonderful advice from the people here who have helped me restore my pool water from disgusting to crystal clear in a few weeks. I think you have found the right place. The people here are so knowlegable and helpful.
