Hi all

We purchased a house that came with a pool and moved in just in time for winter over here. We continued with a pool service over winter while we were renovating and I've been 'dipping my toe in the water' ;) by doing some manual cleaning and investigating our equipment. Now as it comes onto summer and with our kids wanting to swim at every opportunity, I have decided to discontinue the monthly service and the random chemicals and do it myself.

We haven't had any major problems that I know of but I’d like to have a better idea of what is going in the pool and why. One of my children has sensitive skin and we are very careful about chemicals in the house so why wouldn't we be about the pool? My clear choice kit just arrived this morning and once I get home from work, it's testing time and also bye bye pool service.

I’ve been lurking for a little while and found it very helpful, so here goes.

Thanks - mine thought about it but decided against it. They might get blown away today, I work in Canberra and it was very gusty.
