    Hello, my name is George and I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I am a father of an amazing 7 year old boy who is the light and joy of my life. We have many neighbors with kids, and they are usually over here very frequently all summer. So having a pool in the summer here in Albuquerque where it gets very hot, adds to our memories. I had a above ground pool for the last two years, but struggled greatly to keep water balanced and algae free. I am excited to join T.F.P. so hopefully this year could be less stress trying to figure what my pool needs to have a fun summer.
    Hello I have a 17x52 above ground metal frame pool.

    And let me be the first to say...

    You're ahead of the pack -- I see a signature already.

    Don't get too engrossed in all your reading here. Take some time to go enjoy that pool today.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
