    Hello, I'm a new pool owner

    Hello, I recently bought a home that came with a nice pool. I have never owned a pool before so I am learning as I go. I am exited about it, but will need your help along the way. Thank you

    Hello to my neighbor to the south. Great to have you find us. New pool owner? No worries. You're in the right place. I can recommend this #1 piece of advice .... order your own TF-100 test kit (with speedstir) before you do anything else. Don't go to the pool store for advice, testing, or their off the shelf products. It will bite you in the wallet. Make sure to review/save all the links below in my signature (don't forget to updates your sig as well). Lots of folks here ready to assist. Have a nice weekend.

    Welcome! You made the right move coming here. I wish I'd known of this forum when we first had our pool built, but when things went sideways on us this forum was a lifesaver!
