Hey everyone one. Thought I'd make my first post in the Intro.
This has been a helpful site. I've done read all the pool school, and BBB methods, ect. Can't wait to get started. I've already ordered the TF100 kit, and am waiting to receive it in the mail.
A little history about my pool...
Bought a foreclosure last year for next to nothing. It needed tons of TLC though. But has a pool thats about 10 years old. From my understanding, the liner was changed 5 years ago. Problem is, the foreclosure company installed 2x6's across the pool with chicken wire, and then the cover. When hurricane Ike came through, (yup in Kentucky) it shifted the cover, and collapsed in on the shallow end. Wasn't much I could do about it till about a week ago since were finally above the 30 degree weather. I had to repair three tears from the boards collapsing. Hope I got them all. Water level was just at the shallow end where all the water leaked out. I wanted to drain it all, but thanks to this site, found out that was a bad idea. I've now refilled it, but have major algae issues from the mess that was in there when the house set in foreclosure. I'm waiting to receive my test kit before tackling the green.
Here is some pics of what I'm against.
