Hello everyone. My name is John and I live in Houston. My wife has been bugging me about a pool for a couple of years now, but I have been less than interested. Just didn't want to spend thousands of dollars on a white elephant the never got used and sucked up all my spare time and money. My wife is unable to take care of a pool due to health problems, so it would have fallen to me to maintain it or pay someone else. Though I'm still not convinced, a few weeks ago I relented and agreed to a starter pool. Ordered an 18' x 54" Intex ultra frame w/SWG. It's currently on the road somewhere between Cali. and Houston. I have my yard prepared, TF-100 kit ordered, putting in the electric connection tomorrow, and will test my water shortly in preparation for lining up chems. I will likely need. Oh, and reading through Pool School of course.
