    Newbie from Reading, PA

    Hi all,

    First time owning an inground pool. Had an above ground about 15 years ago. First time on a forum too.

    Our pool was completed about two weeks ago (I just got done my twice a day brushings and so now have time to make a post)

    • Built by Anthony & Sylvan
    • 20,000 gallons
    • Ansylbrite finish (blue)
    • LED light (lots of color options)
    • Two LED bubblers on sun shelf
    • standard chlorine system, filter, pump, stuff that's not too exciting
    • House is on a hill, so lots of landscaping needed too

    Did my second backwash today and busted the discharge hose at about 20' since there was a kink in it I didn't see - any suggestions on good discharge hoses?

    Here are some pics...

    Welcome to TFP! Good to have you here Pool looks great!

    Fire departments discard hose that is too old for their use, that may be helpful.

    Have you ordered a test kit? If not, this is the most frequently recommended of the 2 approved kits for TFPC.
