    New pool owner in North Alabama

    Hello! I'm a new pool owner and I thought I knew pools but I have found out that I have a lot to learn! I have a T shaped pool... Basically 2 pools... The top of the T is all shallow and the middle of the T is all deep. I have the Aqua Genie with salt water generator. I have the double chairs, waterfall, slide and diving board. It's 35000 gal or more.

    Re: New pool owner in North Alabama

    Thank you, we bought the house last year and owner had a Specialty T shape pool... Wish it was just a normal rectangle bc all special liners and covers are insane! I love this forum btw... It saved me a new pcb bc I replaced the current limiter and it fixed my issue thanks to this forum!

    Hoping this photo comes through....IMG_1493.jpgIMG_1534.jpg

    see below... It is T shaped because the previous owners were Tiffin's and so they had it shaped like a T. I wish is was just a rectangle so it isn't special order on everything but I am stuck with the T.

    Well, other than the special order vinyl aspect, its a great looking pool! Large play area as well as a diving/slide deep end. My ideal pool almost!
