    Welcome to TFP! We're here to answer your questions as they come so let us know how we can be of help to you.

    You can probably surmise from reading posts and Pool School articles that the best prevention for having pool water problems is by arming yourself with a good test kit. The TF-100 kit (link in my sig) is top notch. Of course, I'll offer up as well, the obligatory "Taylor K-2006 is a good option too" statement as well. I have that one. It's fine but more expensive and you get less reagent than in the TF-100.

    Anyway, welcome. Good to have another Texan on here.
