We bought a home with a pool about 5 years ago. I have been playing it by ear watching youtube and taking recommendations from the local pool store. We have decided to start doing our own testing and using better products in our system. I have looked over the website before joining, and really enjoy seeing everyone's input and willingness to help out each other. Thanks again.

Hey USCG !!! Overseeing your pool will be exponentially easier than, say, patrolling the Atlantic. :)

Get yourself a reliable test kit. See Test Kits Compared. The TF-100 from tftestkits is the best value and will pay for itself over and over again. It’s half the cost of *one* pool store trip that you’ll never take again.

Be sure to fill out your signature in your profile page. Without it, when you ask a question we all have to ask several questions first. If you are on mobile, turn the device sideways to see anybody else’s as a guide. Just fill out everything you know about what you got.

Read up on Pool School posted above and fire off any thoughts / questions.
