    Hello from poolcarma in CA,USA

    Hello,
    I've recently inherited our pool since my husband has gotten too busy with work to keep it up!
    Bummer thing is, we went on vacation and came back to black algae! From this site, I realize our chlorine generator hasn't been working properly for quite a while! I'm embarrased about how much money I've given to Leslie's Pool Supply recently! I have a feeling this fourm will keep me from making that mistake again!

    Thank you so much for creating this forum!

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    I am so impressed with how helpful everyone here is! I feel like I've found a respite in an ocean of bad information! I hope to learn enough to help someone else someday!
