    Hello from NC

    Hello all. NC "Newbie" pool owner with a three year old 24' AGP. JUST finished the conversion from baquacil today and am still learning chlorine based pool care (gee....are all new pool owners as gullible as I was...) Local Pool Store was horrified that I would even think to dump bleach in my pool 8) . "You don't know what the intert ingredients are!!!" There wasn't much of an answer when I asked what the inert ingredients were in their products. Besides the pool, I have a family (wife and 2 kids), three dogs, a parrot, and two lambs. Oh yeah, can't forget the pig we have every spring for my daughter to show... Other intrests include hockey, NASCAR, aquariums, and gardening.

    Just a quick thanks to everyone who has posted on the baquacil forum...I never posted but learned all I needed to get the cleanest, most sparkling water I hve evern seen.
    13,000 gal AGP, Hayward X-Stream 100 sq ft cartridge, 1 HP Hayward Power-Flo Matrix Pump, all on two 6-hour on cycles per day. Baquacil to BBB convert.

    Edited for language and moved to the Introduce Yourself area. JasonLion

    First, Welcome fellow Carolinian. Good luck with the pool.

    Second, you're an F-er fan? You do know there is a more local team down here, eh? Just kidding. We do have a Hockey Talk thread in the Coffee Bar arena.

    Kudos to the F-er fanbase. Last year the team was last in the league, but 4th in overall attendance. Better home attendance than Detroit. Nice to see the team turn it around so well.
