New user, but I've been lurking for a while. This site has been extremely useful. Don't have any questions, just saying hi and thanks for all the good information here. There's so much, that any question I've had in the past is easily answered, either from the pool school or a quick search.
We put in a pool a couple years ago, to entertain the family. Been loving it. One of the best investments we've made. Kids really enjoy it and use it all the time. We keep it really warm, like 90. A tad more at times (night swims). Most of the heat is from solar, but backed up by a gas heater. We keep a bubble cover on every night (unless it's really hot out).
I use liquid chlorine. It's bleach, but I've learned to say liquid chlorine to friends and guests, to avoid
the funny look they shoot me if I say bleach (you can almost read their mind).
Water is clear. As you folks say, it's 'sparkly'. Here's a full test. Once again, no questions, but what's
a first post without test results?
Anyway, thanks again for all the good information and help everyone here provides!
