    Hello and THANK YOU!

    I've been a lurker here for quite some time and thought I should introduce myself. My name is Tracy, my family and I live in Michigan. We have owned an Intex type pool, (brand name is Summer Escapes) has a skimmer type filter, for 3 summers now, our starter pool to see if we could handle the maintenace of a pool. Thanks to this site, that is a breeze. I love the BBB method!

    Now, I just need to somehow ruin this pool so hubby will agree to an upgrade! Darn thing is very durable, has withstood 2 Michigan winters with no damage.

    Thanks for an AWESOME site!

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D
