Bought a house with a pool two years ago and was too busy with a new job to fully learn the process of pool ownership. Had a pool service up until this summer. I'm a little overwhelmed but I think TFP will calm that feeling.

I've been battling mustard algae all summer and now dealing with high CYA. Found this website and seems to have a lot of good information.

I've been testing my water at Leslie's but purchased my own water testing kit based on the advice from TFP. Hopefully I can get back on the right path once the test arrives.

Thanks for welcoming me to the forum.

Welcome to the forum!
When you get your test kit, post up your results in a new thread in Just Getting Started.
What kit did you purchase?
I suggest you read ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry.
