    Now open!

    just finished ripping the cover off!
    started pump last week, with a pH adjustment and some Cl- had a loose fitting cover on, figured I'd let it absorb some more heat while beginning to get the balance right!
    So got the cover off, got about 10 leaves off the bottom...
    CRYSTAL CLEAR! YEAH!
    Having some friends over later for some swimming and BBQ (hotwings!)
    Never easier- especially since my 16 yo son did the MANUAL part!

    Good for you!

    I was pretty clear when I uncovered last week. I decided to go ahead and hit shock level and see if it held, it did!

    Agreed never easier. Have a great summer!

    minor correction- that's friends, not family- the one in the orange shirt next to firepit is my 16 yo son, all the others are just enjoying the afternoon!
