    My Pool Pics

    New member to TFP and wanted to share my pool pics...mostly so I can reference this post/pics since it is hard trying to explain my pool layout, equipment, landscaping since it is some unique. I have several other areas/angles but will upload them on another post b/c of file size.

    Looks like a pretty big job! The great thing is the chemistry is the same no matter how large the pool may be. Check out http://www.troublefreepool.com/calc.html if you haven't seen it yet.

    Re: My Pool Pics

    Hey everyone! Thx for the all wonderful feedback. Sorry I haven't been online in 2 days...I was dealing with HUGE swamp in my backyard. In short, I came last week from vacation after 2 weeks to find my pool completely taken over by green algae. The silver lining in it though lead me to start maintaining it myself and to TFP!

    - - - Updated - - -

    To answer few of your questions: The pool & spa are somewhere between 85k-100k gallons, I bought the house with the pool already built so I am not sure on exact size...I have an original layout design from previous owner and kinda narrowed it down to 90kish. It is 88'L x 40'W (shallow area) x 18'W (grotto area) x 22'W (deep/slide area). It ranges from 3'D to 8'D gradually. The spa is probably about 18'L x 10'W x 5'D. The tall stepped fall is 15'H above grade, the spa itself is 5' above grade.

    Divin Dave thanks a ton for the link to the Posting Photo Tutorial. I will become a supporter and upload more pics for you guys.

    Re: My Pool Pics

    Whoohoo...lifetime supporter now! Here are a few more pics of the pool as promised! It has a bridge and rock river thingy behind it as well (it is where the rear entrance leads to) but I don't have any pics of that with me at the moment. Primary reason for uploading them is to hopefully give others some ideas on pool design, layout...needless to say I was speechless when l walked into the backyard while looking to purchase the house (must have tripped over myself like 5 times running around like a kid in a candy store). That all said, and as another noted, it is a TON of work...but that is b/c I enjoy doing it myself. It keeps my and my family outside together all the time instead of the kiddos stuck on their ipads playing minecraft 24/7 lol.

    Re: My Pool Pics

    Wow man, that is a massive amount of water.

    How about some equipment photos?

    The SWG must be huge to accommodate that thing.

    When I first saw the photos I thought you bought the Playboy mansion!

    Lol smforte. No no, I have a dbl wide parked in front of it!

    - - - Updated - - -

    Borjis I will post some of the equip pad. It has 2 salt systems. I still don't think they can keep up though...I keep a few pucks in the chlorine feeder as well. Maybe overkill but still learning her out some...only bought house 8 months ago and opened pool just 4 months ago.
