    Cool new salt water pool owner

    Hi everyone,
    Just moved into my new home in Atlanta, GA and dream come true with owning my very first salt water pool.
    Very excited to learn all I can about how my pool works and to maintain it properly.

    Welcome! Feel free to ask any and all question you may have. I guaranty that many of us were in the same place and have found TFP to be the BEST resource for answers.

    Might I suggest that you checkout Pool School up at the top of the page? There are a lot of good articles and it gives a good explanation of what we are all about.

    +1 on Bob's suggestion. Yes it can be overwhelming at first, but take your time, ask questions, read up, and realize it will take time. In a couple months you'll be feeling like an expert.
