    Good Day from Chesapeake VA

    Hi 3rd year of owning an in-ground salt water pool in southern Virginia. Was paying a pool service to maintain but have gradually begun to take on tasks. This spring's opening will be a major milestone for me.

    A part from having water tested and adding in what I was told to do I have cleaned the DE filter - very happy I took many pics before so I could rebuild the puzzle after and have changed out the Aux pump - touch and go tightening connections without a torque wrench...

    I expect to be a regular visitor to TFP and appreciate all the guidance you are willing to share.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Dave

    Dave, you just THOUGHT your water was clear before! Wait until you see it using TFP guidelines!

    We can't wait to see some pics of your pool!

    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
