    Hi from Sunny Florida (SoFl)

    Hi there,

    My name is Renzo (User name: RAFA) and live in Fort Lauderdale, SoFl. I'm new to the pool maintenance (first house with pool) and have been learning the hard way on how to manage it. I found TFP to be a great source when it comes to reading others experiences and advice from pros, experts and owners.

    I have a kidney shape pool, 15K gal, open air, exposed to sun all day and in a backyard with some fruit trees (Mango, Lemons, Papaya) and flowering shrubs.

    I'm working on the maintenance myself so there are new challenges (all the time). Hope to be of help at one point (I guess once I passed my learning curve).

    Best regards,

    Renzo
