For years I've been a member of poolforum.com......from there, i saw a post about this new site.
Good to be here.
I live in western NY, and have a 30' AG pool with a big, beautiful, all vinyl deck. I designed and built it myself, and installed the pool myself also. Actually, I designed and built the house that it is attached to also. If there is a place to post pics here, I'll try it.
Anyway, I've used the BBB method for years...it's great! I have the PS-232 and a PS-234 test kit.
Although I live outside of Buffalo, NY, I do not cover my pool in the winter......no wind damage that way, and it is much easier cleaning some leaves in the spring then messing with a cover 2x a year.
Anyway, I'll look around here, and post and help when I can. thanks! Frank D.
