    Raygirl

    Hello,
    I am new here and am considering letting the pool service go. I am intimidated by the chemicals and keeping the pool in good condition but I do not think they do much that I cannot learn

    Re: Raygirl

    Welcome,
    If your not in dire straights with a problem, may I suggest Pool School for some light reading.
    And if you do decide to care for it your self may I also suggest the TF-100 test kit offered here on the site. The instructions mounted to the inside cover of the kit are very easy to understand and EASY to use. I enjoy using the kit and it has taught me a great deal about pool chemistry.

    you can do it.!

    yep, you can definitely do it...nice-looking pool. Any problem that I've come upon in my few short months on this forum has been given a solution by the brainies on this forum.
    Good Luck, and read the Pool School stickies!
