Welcome aboard! We're further south and on the Atlantic side of Florida. Couldn't agree more, we swim most days year round! TFP methods are different than you'll hear about at the pool store. But they work great and are the most cost effective way there is by far. One of the best aspects of this site is that we sell absolutely nothing. So all you get here is straight-up advice from experts and enthusiasts - never conflicted by wanting to sell you expensive potions or equipment you don't need. We've been getting dirt cheap generic chemicals from big box stores instead of pool stores since joining this site over 5 years ago and our pool is the envy of neighbors that use expensive pool services and "free test" based pool store advice.
May I suggest that you add your signature? It gets the basic info about your pool and equipment added at the bottom of each entry you make. This saves our volunteer experts time to get answers to you quickly. Here's how to do it.
If you have any questions at all about your pool please don't hesitate to ask. It's what we're here for.
You have found the pool and spa information gold mine. This site will be a valuable resource for you. Welcome.
Have you noticed there are no advertisments? How can this be in this day and age and who are all these pool experts so willing to volunteer their time and expertise?
