Hi everyone,
Nice homeowners and it came with a pool. Have to say, didn't realize a pool was such a process. In hindsight would not have one .... but that can't be changed now, and the kidz do love it. So, time to make the best of it.
The more I read the more confused I get! Completely lost at the moment, but working my way through it, hence joining this forum .... thank you! So far have been relying on the local pool company.

Oh I see you too have been putting the Pool Shop Owner's kids through college.
I was doing that too. :cheers:

I know, right? $$ flying out the window. I see my typo in the first post ... although we are "nice" we are New homeowners .... and the $ are flying out there too. Should have stayed in the apt in the city! :LOL:

Pool store? Noooooooo!



Seriously, start with the proper test kit. I recommend the TF-100 (link below) but the Taylor K-2006C will also work. See Test Kits Compared. With that, review our ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry and read/save those Vital Links below in my signature. That will keep you pon track. But the test kit is #1. Welcome to TFP! :wave:
Thank you. That picture is also me when they give me the bill every time!! Yes, I've already ordered the TF-100, should be here soon. Thanks for the links.
