    linen

    Hello everyone!

    I have been lurking for about a year when I started finding out if I liked maintaining a pool with a intex 12ft X 30in. I found I loved the chemistry etc, much of the credit for that can be given to this great resource! Last fall I (and my boys) pulled a free agp pool (craigslist) from a yard and put it in ours. We are now enjoying crystal clear water while I help others locally get their pools clear as well. I added borates today using boric acid...

    Thanks to all the contributors here!

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    Welcome to the forum

    That's about the best price I've ever seen for a pool

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Seems like you can find people around here that just "want it out of the yard" at the end of the swimming season. I got the pump and filter as well...I like free! We had to remove it, which was work, I had my boys help, hoping to teach them that "if you want something, you have to work for it".

    Re: linen

    Linen.... Great find!

    We got ours used through a for sale board at my Hubby's work. We had to pay some for it, but nothing like what it would have cost had we bought a new one! We got their deck and a heater as well.. we added a lot to the deck (after we cleaned it up) and haven't used the heater (don't want to pay the cost of it.. Yikes!)
    Indiana, ABG 24'x52" Galveston by Blue Cascade (Craigslist buy w/part of deck included), 13,500 gallons, Intex SWG, solar panels mix 2, TF-100 test kit.
