GREAT SITE!!! I recently purchased my first above groud pool (still waiting for it to arrive). It's an oval shaped 15 x 30 & 52" deep. I was planning on filling it with 13,500 gallons of trucked in "city" water to the tune of $700. I live in the country & don't want to fill it with my rusty well water.
Here's the deal. A "friend" at work said I could fill my pool with water from my POND!!!
Do you REALLY think that is possible?!?!?!?! Here is a little background on my pond. VERY CLEAN water. You can see down 4 feet. I use Aqushade (blue dye) to block sunlight into the water & help stop any algea growth. And I used one application of Karmex herbicide back in April to kill any & all aquatic weeds. No chemicals added since April. Karmex is safe for humans. The pond looks clean & clear. The kids & I have swam in it every year. Just wanted to make the move to a "real" pool.
My new pool is equipped with a 1.5 HP pump & 22" sand filter.
I've seen opening pics that look WAY worse than the water in my pond. See below.
So, do you think I should try to save the $700.00 & fill it with pond water?
ANY and ALL help or comments are appreciated!!!
