    Just introducing myself

    I just joined this forum today and wanted to check in and say hello. I have an IG Gunite/white plaster pool with attached spa which was completed in late November of 2006, so I'm still a fairly new pool owner with one complete annual cycle under my belt now. I maintain my own pool and, even though it can be a bother sometimes, I like doing it. I currently use a Taylor K-2006 test kit, and I'm shopping around right now for an automatic pool vacuum (I'm looking very forward to owning one!). Spring is almost here and we're starting to stare at the pool more and more with anticipation of a new swim season! Looking forward to exchanging comments/information/opinions/etc. with you folks in here.
