    Hello from N. AL

    Hey,
    I found this site the other day and, with the chance of jinxing myself, we will be closing on our house in a few weeks and its got a pool. The pool made the deal, because it felt like a fiar trade for no garage.
    The pool is a 16' x 32' x 40 true L. I am not sure of the volume. I am hoping to get some measurments when we do the home inspection in a few days. I am hoping to do BBB because it seems to me the simplest way to go. We are looking forward to learning a lot about our pool from this site.
    My wife is a/an mechanical/electrical engineer for a major defense contractor and I work for AFLAC (you know, the duck).
    Anyway, just wanted to say hello
    Tony

    My Pool set up:

    28,000 gal, 40x32x16 True "L" IGP, 3-8.5 ft depth, Hayward 1.5hp Super Pump, Pro Seriews 300# sand filter, 2 skimmers, 3 returns, Barracuda III suction cleaner

    You might want to consider a good test kit. Worth there weight in gold in my opinion. I have the TF100 sold here. Great kit.

    Welcome - I suggest getting a good test, that will be key to making a truly trouble free pool. I plan to try my new TF100 kit this weekend and see how our water looks as it comes out of hose....hoping to fill our pool by next weekend.

    Good luck on the closing. That's a nice sized pool. You'll find BBB a great way to maintain a "trouble free pool".

    Wow. What a coincidence. I grew just north of Montgomery, and made it to Katy too!
