    Pictures of My Pool!!

    I am finally getting around to posting pictures of my pool. Thanks to everyone here at TFP for all the help and answering all my questions!

    Any comments or suggestions are appreciated!!

    I am including a close up of my drain in 8 1/2 feet of water. I think this is pretty clear but I would like your feedback!

    At the time of these pictures my readings were: FC 5.5, CC 0.0, Akl 110 (I am working on getting it to 80), pH 7.2, CYA 50 (on my way to 70), Calcium 300, Phosphates 0 Borates 35

    All planning a new pool. See the room for loungers? That's what we all wish for but many of us don't have. Great planning.

    We added the extra pavers right before they started putting them in. It was well worth the extra cost!

    Wow! Primetime!

    Is that Belgard Mega Arbel I see around your pool? It looks just wonderful! You chose a perfect color paver to go with the PebbleSheen blue. Just yummy!

    Wishing you many years of enjoyment~~

    You know your pavers! They really work well when you have a big area to cover. Thanks for the kind words!

    I think it would look better if it was full of bikini-ed bimbos.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
