    FIRST opening of my pool is a SUCCESS thanks to BBB - pics!!

    Hey All,

    Just wanted to say THANKS for a GREAT site & info!!! I bought an above ground pool last July & Assembled it myself. Closed it myself last fall (I live in Ohio) for the winter. Last week I opened the winter cover to find this...



    Added the recommended amount of Bleach via poolcalculator.com and 24 hours later it looked like this...



    After 3 days of the pump & filter running 24/7 and a few brushings & vacuming of the liner...



    THANK YOU troublefreepool.com & poolcalculator.com for making my first pool opening TRULY... TROUBLE FREE!!!

    Awesome! I'm jealous!
    And wondering how you got the water warm so fast, or do you have amphibians for kids?

    Your local pool chemical store will miss you!
    93mastercraft - Aqua Leader Reflexion 21' round 54" high above ground pool. This is not a $399.00 Pool! Wedding cake steps, Haywood 1.5 pump/sand filter. If I'd thought taking care of a pool was this easy, I'd owned one a long time ago!

    Choman...can you you please post a pic of the deck around your pool...i am having an AGP put in on Tuesday exactly the same shape as yours and plan on having a deck built...the one you have seems like what i was looking for...a 12x16 square hangout area on one corner and a 3' walkway down one side for the kids.

    AWESOME job getting your pool that clear and ready for the kids that fast...i have 9, 6 and 5 yr old kids that are looking forward to their summer pool fun to start.

    Thank you!

    .
    Thanks all for your amazingly helpful advice! Bo
