Purchased a house in Maryland with an in-ground pool last August, pool was in great condition so used it a bit before having a pool company come close it. I opened it myself two weeks ago and have learned so much about pool Chemistry from this website since then.
Last year, and at the start of my opening this year, I was reliant on Leslie's to do my water testing, and supply all my chemicals based on that. Needless to say I have spent a good amount of money there lately. I discovered this website, purchased the TF-100 kit and am having a great time doing my own tests (and working with Kemtex Chlorine from BJ's).

Looking forward to learning a bunch from the experienced folk here at TFP.
