First Time Pool Owner - Shout out to this Community

Hi There,

I am a new pool owner and live in Texas. I have lived in the house for 9 months and had a pool service that was finally phased out. The pool service came once a week, primarily used tablets and our pool started to get mustard algae.

Long story short, I found this website and have taken over the pool care. The pool looks great, no more algae and although I am still learning a lot (I need to bring down the CYA level a little more), I feel like I got this :).

Thank you to this community and this website for all your time, information and resources!!
