    NEW TO TFP and have a 2 month old pool!

    Just had a pool built and its about 2 months old. I really should have been on here sooner so feeling behind for sure. Pool was maintained first few weeks by the builder and I went on vacation and really just now getting into what i need to do!

    I can tell it is getting cloudy and was out with some friends the other night and they said have I been testing the PH everyday..... Needless to say I have not so I got on here and figured I really need to get going on everything.

    My name is Chris we live in Texas outside of Houston in League City. Thanks in advance for any and all help as I learn to maintain the pool ourselves

    I am going share a link that many new people to TFP said was very helpful. It will help you learn "our language" here:

    TFPC for Beginners

    I agree with Jim for you to start a new thread in Just Getting Started so we can get that pretty pool clear!

    Welcome Chris (H20Palmer). I too just join this great site. It has become an Hobby (Obsession?) to keep my pool (Completed Aug 2016) in tip top shape. Last year was my first complete year and I have to admit, I kept a nice Pool. However, after spending countless hours reading on this great site I have made a few errors. One is my CYA is high. I m starting to drain and refill this week. The Math Calculator is AWESOME on here. BTW...I m right down I 45 from you in TC. Welcome and enjoy your beautiful pool! I too am checking my signature...hope it works this time...
