Hello to my neighbor to the south. Great to have you find us. New pool owner? No worries. You're in the right place. I can recommend this #1 piece of advice .... order your own TF-100 test kit (with speedstir) before you do anything else. Don't go to the pool store for advice, testing, or their off the shelf products. It will bite you in the wallet. Make sure to review/save all the links below in my signature (don't forget to updates your sig as well). Lots of folks here ready to assist. Have a nice weekend.
