    Smile New Above Ground Pool Owner

    Hi folks,

    Our 27' round AGP will be installed on June 10th and I was told about TFP by Zed88 who has given me a wealth of information already. I grew up with an AGP but that was many years ago and I'm excited to "dive" back in. Sorry, bad pun. We live in Northern Illinois, so, swimming season is limited. We'll be looking for ways to make every day a good swimming day from Memorial Day through Labor Day at least.

    Welcome!

    27' is a big pool. You need a grownup test kit. Order one now and start off on the right foot.
    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!
