New to TFP

Hello everyone! I am new to this site. I was referred here by ChemGeek. I am a APSP Certified Service Professional operating out of Bethesda MD. I have found these forums very helpful, especially with water chemistry. I have been to Tech 2 pool school and taken numerous advanced water chemistry classes. Alot of the stuff I've learned here wasnt even mentioned in these classes (such as maintaining Free Chlorine 10% of CYA). I've also completed Jandy, Raypak, and Pentair technical schools and am always looking to advanced my swimming pool knowledge. This is a great site!

Muss, it's my pleasure to welcome a 'brother in pools' to TFP!!

I hope you won't mind my picking your brain from time to time as (for some reason) all 4 of the companies I've worked for have used primarily Hayward products - so I'm a little lacking on the Pentair and Jandy products that I run into a couple of times each season :roll:

Again, welcome here!! I hope that you will not only use this site as a resource for learning, but also contribute from your knowledge/ experience :-D
