    New to TFP

    Hello everyone! I am new to this site. I was referred here by ChemGeek. I am a APSP Certified Service Professional operating out of Bethesda MD. I have found these forums very helpful, especially with water chemistry. I have been to Tech 2 pool school and taken numerous advanced water chemistry classes. Alot of the stuff I've learned here wasnt even mentioned in these classes (such as maintaining Free Chlorine 10% of CYA). I've also completed Jandy, Raypak, and Pentair technical schools and am always looking to advanced my swimming pool knowledge. This is a great site!

    Muss, it's my pleasure to welcome a 'brother in pools' to TFP!!

    I hope you won't mind my picking your brain from time to time as (for some reason) all 4 of the companies I've worked for have used primarily Hayward products - so I'm a little lacking on the Pentair and Jandy products that I run into a couple of times each season

    Again, welcome here!! I hope that you will not only use this site as a resource for learning, but also contribute from your knowledge/ experience

    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

    POOL SCHOOL, TF Testkits, Jason's Pool Calculator, CYA vs. cl chart, (Just a few DARNED handy links!)

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
