Pools and how they work have been a part of my life for over 15 years. In fact I met the love of my life at a pool. I've always loved giving people easy to understand advice to help keep their pools fun, healthy, and circulating. Which is why I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge through the blogging channel. Outside of pools, I enjoy time with my family and friends, being outdoors, and working on cars.
