    Massachusetts checking in!

    Hi Everyone,

    I've been viewing this site for quite some time while I get my fall-spring pool build to a finished state.
    The wealth of information on this site is a tremendous help, throughout my pool build and down the road when I begin to maintain it. I am glad I found this before I headed down this path of owning my first pool. Thanks everyone!

    I am from Massachusetts, in the South Shore area between Boston and Cape Cod. It's starting to warm up (80 on Monday, yeah!) so getting the pool ready will be a priority.

    Anyway, hope to read, listen and learn - and provide value and help where I can. Cheers!
    I will post some pictures tonight.

    Ron

    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.
