    New from MD Eastern Shore

    New guy here. New 18x38 concrete pool put in this winter/spring. Filled in May. Very deep (they overdug...) in diving end. SWS and robotic cleaner. Partly landscaped, still more to do. Not completely happy with a few things, but seems to be functioning very well. PH has been high since we filled, and we keep adding acid about a gallon a week. Forgot about it and i have a little scale that looks to be forming. PH was very high. In more acid went. Ill give it a good brushing too tonight. I was told the ph will settle a bit over time and was due to the plaster. We have had some fierce downpours that made me pump her down 2x so far. Pentair var speed pump is great and electric bills were not as high as expected.

    Water is just over 80 deg.

    Oh that's not bad. Deep deep ends are 10. I'd love a 9-10 feet deep...I'm ~6.5
