    Hello from Newbie (to pool and forum)

    We just had our pool installed late last year (2016) and we are learning about the pool maintenance. I just wanted to introduce myself and to say hello.

    Welcome!

    May be I be the first to post, "Can you post test results?"

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
