    Newbie in WV

    Hey guys...well, we aren't really newbies, but we've had our pool for about 1 1/2 years now. So far we've just been getting by with the minimal upkeep, but we'd like to become more knowledgeable and have a better grasp on related issues, especially water chemistry. We have a great pool guy/builder, but is really laid back...not too big on extras (stabilizer, clarifier, etc). He comes from a shock your pool and that's all you need to do kind of background...we'd like to learn more and become more familiar with all that stuff. So, with that said, I guess you'll be seeing a lot of us on here! Thank's y'all!

    Welcome Tome

    Pull up a chair and read Pool School. Yeah, go ahead and read it two or three times then come on back and ask what you don't understand.

    You'll need a good test kit to properly care for your pool too.

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D
